dev/archive/mirroring: Give better size estimates.
From stage one of a recent bootstrap: 267950759 bytes of source packages 62755311 bytes of architecture-dependent packages 12650961 bytes of architecture-independent packages That's a total of 327.45 MiB (round up to 330 MiB for the initial size estimate). ProteanOS 1.0 will probably have three architectures, so multiply the second number by three for a sum of 447.15 MiB (round up and add about 50 MiB in additional packages for a projected size estimate of 500 MiB).
