Dear Git Devs,
I love GIT, but since a couple of months I'm on 3G and after my traffic
limit is transcended, things slow down to a feeble 8KiB/s. Juuuust like
back then - things moved somewhat slower. And I'm fine with that - as
long as things just keep moving.
Unfortunately, git does not scale down very well, so for ten more days I
will be unable to get the newest commits onto my machine. Which is very,
very sad :/

Bam, the server kicked me off after taking to long to sync my copy.
Multiple potential points of action:
- git fetch should show the total amount of data it is about to transfer!
- when ab^H^Horting, the cursor should be moved down (tput cud1) to not
overwrite previous output
- would be nice to be able to tell git fetch to get the next chunk of
say 500 commits instead of trying to receive ALL commits, then b0rking
after umpteen percent on server timeout. Not?
