You should be able to pull it out of the underlying GlibURLDownloader
(getter) headers from inside _download_progress_cb(), like so:
size = getter._info.headers["Content-Length"]
But, what we should really do is provide an accessor in sugar/network.py.
The advantage of the above is that, even though it's groveling inside
the downloader internals, it won't require introducing a new API
dependency between activities and sugar. Sugar gang, any thoughts?
