No - this isn't possible, unfortunately. This is actually a 
limit of the HTTP protocol: unlike FTP, you can't "list" 
files and "directories" (there are no files and directory 
in HTTP, only "ressources"), and you can not request the 
remote size of a website.

This isn't an unimplemented feature, but a missing HTTP 
feature (which can not be implemented, by the way, because 
of design choices)
