Comment (by pierre):

 Problem is with packages, which do things ''after'' install: tests for
 systemd and dejagnu, and locales in glibc (actually, I'm not sure how
 those should be counted, since the user may choose to not install them or
 to install all, or to install one more for her(his) own locale). Anyway,
 those things occur after the binary package has been saved to its repo, so
 all size calculation will include the size of the binary package, unless
 we exclude /var/lib/packages from the '''du''' command. But wait, what
 about the timings?

 Wouldn't it be possible to packInstall after the "adjust"/"test" phase?
 I'd say it's the way to go.
