Currently, we can obtain the file size of a file already installed by using File.size(). It would be nice to be able to obtain that info *before* the archive contents are installed. That way, a script writer can ascertain whether or not there is enough room on the harddrive to install it. Note: if you list out the contents of the archive (even before unzipping it), the file sizes can be obtained. In UNIX, do an "unzip -v". It also lists out time stamps as well, so that could be useful as well (e.g. for File.modDate()). I'll leave that for another enhancement request.
The xpinstall script engine has been removed from the trunk, bugs in it are obsolete.
