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.

it's quite possible, if the server is pipelining the requests/replies 
on one connection, then you will not start receiving info about the 
second file until the first one is done.
