I would love to see pacman display the current position and total number of items in the download queue like it does for the installation queue. Because downloading is usually a much longer process than installation, it doesn't make sense to me why this information is presented for installation but not during the download phase.
This task depends upon

Dan, opinions? I'm for it. I know I've switched terminals before and kinda wondered what step I was at.

Doesn't seem like a bad idea. Can we unify the progress bars? That would make this a +10.

The only reason we can't is the download speed type data... which throws everything out of whack... but we can get closer to unifying them at least.
