[jsword-devel] Predicted download times for file downloads

When downloading files in And Bible the Progress bar shows inaccurate
download estimates due to using a predicted download time.

I have been experimenting using actual progress figures based on file size
and it seems to be working fine.  Is there a reason the predictive rather
than actual approach was taken or shall I submit a potential patch for

My experiment involved:
   passing Progress into WebResource
   calling getSize at the start of WebResource.copy()
   accumulate total bytes downloaded
   call job.setWork in the WebResource.copy() download loop

Best regards
