patch to give total run progress indication

Here's a little patch that creates a new flag "--total-progress", which causes
the progress indication to be based on data-copied/total-data, rather than on a
per-file basis. It may be used with or without -v(erbose).

Is this useful, or would people prefer to just use the existing --progress/-P
flag, and have the global totals only used in non-verbose mode?

Also, when used with -r(ecursive) mode, you can see some interesting oddities,
as it scans subdirectories as it goes. This means it's possible to have the
total number of files (and the % completed) *decrease* as it runs as it scans
more subdirectories. I'm not sure if there's any real way around this.
