The perceived size of a download depends on the actual size, and the
bandwidth available.

Does the updater handle stop and continue of download, and give any
indication of the duration expected?  Users will be more willing to
try massive updates (e.g. new Wikipedia activity) if they can be more
in control.

Also, it would be nice if the updater provided updates to nearby
users.  ;-)
