[Yum] Suggestion for yum

Just a small suggestion for yum. When it outputs something like:

I will do the following:
[update: rhythmbox 0.6.10-0.1.1.fc1.fr.i386]
[update: gnome-session 2.4.0-3.i386]
[update: grip 1:3.1.8-1.1.fc1.fr.i386]
Is this ok [y/N]:

how about adding the size of each RPM in that list? That would give the
user the opportunity to decide the download is too large for now, and
to abort the operation until a better occasion.

I'm assuming such information is available in the headers.
