you can't just add up the file sizes to determine the data to be transferred. Because only changes are transferred, not whole files.

Exactly and this is what I'm suggesting; that this correct calculation is made by determining the total of each individual files change data. That could be done on the local system before submission and shown in this box here. It may be that the figure doesn't appear instantly as the window renders and that it has to calculate enumerating through files in the background once the window is up.
How hard and how useful would it be to list the combined file size
303 files (37kBytes) selected, 305 files (219kBytes) total
(i.e. show the file size and leave the guessing how big the commit might be to the user)?
It would at least give a hint whether really large files are added/selected/committed,
like compiled binaries or big pictures.
(Some projects I work with store 200MBytes+ disk images in SVN and then you want to know in advance whether that file is checked or not ..)

and how useful
So for defining a worst-case scenario it might be useful.
There is a simple solution for that: mark/label the value appropriatelyLike: approximate amount of data to transferOr: data amount estimate: up to x MB
