"The issue im having here is the ETA, specifically the ETA of the total overall package. The number isnt generated by the formula of (size-bytes loaded)/speed.

The ETA for each individual file in the package is generated this way, but the ETA for the total package itself is simply the longest eta of an individual package (which is far from accurate given im downloading 9 files at once, like if one file says ETA of 9 days based on its current speed, that will change drastically once one or two files finish downloading and more bandwidth is available for the longer download to use, reducing its ETA). I understand that there are times when this would be suitable (like if a package contains links from different hosts and some hosts are significantly slower than others), but in a lot of cases people simply arent using it that way. Is there a way we can have a secondary package ETA that just shows us Total kb remaining/total speed?"
