This is minor; I don't even know if it is worth fixing.

The install times on the packages is way off.  It told me it
would take over an hour to install almost all of the
packages.  The time it took was actually a half-hour.  (The
install times jumped all around during the install).

We are constantly working to improve this estimation, but it is really a
complicated number (would not seem to be, but it really is) and therefore, there
is a great amount of deviation at the beginning of the installation.  The more
packages that get installed (and therefore can be used for the time estimation)
the better the estimation is.  Thanks for the feedback
