Bug#368245: debian-installer: Add time estimation to progress bar "copy partition"

Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist


- In stall new hard disk
- Partition new disk
- Move data from old disk to new disk.


The "copy data" from existing partition is handy, but when copying
large partitions (40..150G), the progress bar shows only percentage.

It would be nice if there were also time esitmate attached to to the
bottom, which would update itself accordingly. It's would be good to
know how long it takes to copy e.g. 150G to another disk and estimate
what could be done in the mean time (go shopping, fix car, go cycling
