Description of problem:
Sometimes it happens, that I need to download a rpm from an external
source (ftp or http). I don't download it via wget or ncftp, but
directly install it via rpm -Uvh proto://someurl/pkg.rpm. It would be
nice if rpm displays a progessbar (as wget or ncftp does), while
downloading this package. Especially with huge packages (eg. kernel
rpm), you are wondering how long this action will take...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.3.2-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
See description...

Progress bars are displayed if the size of the package
is known a priori:

bash$ sudo rpm -Uvh file://localhost/var/tmp/time-1.7-24.i386.rpm
warning: file://localhost/var/tmp/time-1.7-24.i386.rpm: V3 DSA
signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2

########################################### [100%]
   1:time                  
########################################### [100%]

Ascertaining package size is dependent on http: and ftp:
protocol peculiarities, and is dependent on server implementation
and configuration.
