What is the size of CentOS repository?

How do we know the size of CentOS repository before download it all? I'm sure there are many ways to do that by using yum / yast2 or other tool.
I'll try to achieve the same using "simple" commands presented in almost any Linux distribution. I let you here the script. It's not 100% perfect, in fact isn't, but I think is a nice starting point, feel free to improve it.
The script can be possible applied to RHEL, Oracle Linux and Fedora but I haven't test it against such distros.  

Enjoy it!


I got the following results:

Summary [Feb, 9 2012] (Considering only the x86_64 architecture)

DISTRO SUMMARY http://mirror.centos.org/centos 5.7 :  ~ 11 GB
DISTRO SUMMARY http://mirror.centos.org/centos 6.2 :  ~ 10 GB



TOTAL SIZE: ~22 GB
