That's BAD. A zillion users complained about it when this didn't work for a
while during the libzypp migration. This is something many users want to
have.

I dare to disagree. I believe that users does not need to have a nice, cool-looking bar graph of current disk space status in front of his/her eyes all the time. It is a waste of screen space and there are quite some more useful information that could be displayed instead - e.g. pattern description
I fully agree with you here. There are a lot of secondary information on the screen, that should be used to make primary information more attractive and more easy to read (color, big fonts, icons, etc.) disk usage is a pretty good example.
