This will work for new apps but for old apps it will report "0" unless the agent backfills the data.

Marking as fix committed on the server, even though all the code is in place; somebody still needs to backfill the data now at some point, as most apps are showing up in the api with binary_filesize: null

Contrary to what Michael Vogt (mvo) says above, the latest addition to the software-center, 'RC Mini Racers', still has 'Total size Unknown' in it's description.

@jarlath - do you have a screenshot and more detail. I see where RC Mini Racers shows the size correctly in software-center 5.2.6.
