Bug#168710: apt: Download time for apt-get update is based on current file only

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.4
Severity: minor

When doing an "apt-get update", the estimator is pretty wildly off
because it only takes the file that's currently being downloaded
into account.  This looks like this:

Hit ftp://non-us.debian.org unstable/non-US/non-free Sources
Get:6 ftp://non-us.debian.org unstable/non-US/non-free Release [95B]
Get:7 ftp://ftp.debian.org unstable/main Packages [2244kB]                     
99% [7 Packages 2235814/2244kB 99%]                                  6460B/s 1s

... with the sources lists still in need for a download.
