Storage Size of Files in a Playlist

On the status bar at the bottom of smart views in the media library local library views, the total number of items listed or selected, total time to play the items listed or selected, and the total size of the items listed or selected is given.

However for the playlists only the number of items and total time to play is given for those listed or selected. It would be a benefit for those copying a playlist's files to a mobile device to also be shown the total size of the items listed or selected in a playlist.

is something i've thought off as well, but the key issue is file sizes generally aren't stored in playlists (just title and duration). so other than reading things in on display, etc and trying to obtain it retroactively as well as exposing it via the internal playlist api (which isn't all that tricky), it would then just be finding a field it can be stored into if other programs have been doing such a thing already, otherwise we'd need to pick an arbitrary #ext... field to store things in.

My bad. I don't show the file size column in my views and forgot that that info is stored in the media library record for each file. So reading things in on display and obtaining file sizes retroactively would probably slow things down.
