I have to agree here. RB should never burn data cds. That is the job of
say nautilus cd burner. Thus, knowing the file size is not important.

Sounds sane to me.
One thing we have to keep in mind is, we must design the UI with
simplicity. We can easily destroy this by adding very silly
features/bugs like the file size.
One other thing I must agree on is the nessesity of the status bar. If
one has either a large music library or has a remote library (nfs mount
for example), the current status needs to be known. One of the things it
should do is hide when it reaches 100%, which I believe is not the cast
