Lightroom: Add filesize to grid extras

I've upgraded from Bridge CS5 to Lightroom 5. One feature that I really miss from Bridge is the ability to select filesize as a grid extra, displayed for each cell. Files that I edit with Photoshop can get pretty large. It is nice to have that information readily available.

I realize that the filesize can be viewed for a selected file in the Metadata panel (EXIF and IPTC), but this is not very convenient.

For Lightroom: I would really appreciate it if you added "file size" to the viewable options available in the info labels in Grid and Loupe Views. After reading a number of online forums, I've found it in the Metadata Panel, but it would be handy to also have the option to choose it as one of the labels in the various Library Views. I know "Megapixels" is an option, but that's not really what I'm after. It seems others have also expressed interest in this in some Lightroom forums I've read. Thanks!

An option to show the file size of the shown foto in Library Grid od Library Loupe View would be helpful. Currently it is only possible to show the Megapixels, but not the file size.

It would be helpful to view the file size in the grid view or in the loupe view in LR CC.
As of this reading it is only available via IPTC and EXIF in the metadata panel. For doing a lot of additional work in PS CC and ON1Photo10, the file size is quite important to realize if the picture is flattened or still "Smart".
