How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Show Patch/Software Update Size

When building software update packages in SCCM we run into having to build a deployment package to see what size the updates are. The issue we are having is managing the size of these packages which are frequently getting into the multiple GB range. One we ran recently hit almost 6 GB.

This information is on the Windows Update Catalog site, but it doesn't appear to be in SCCM or WSUS. I'm guessing that it isn't in the data that is available to WSUS and as a result SCCM doesn't get it either. It would be very useful if we could see the update size in the All Updates view, in Update Groups and in the Update Packages views as well.
