Not sure if I grok you properly... gcmd already has support for
calculation of dir sizes - just use SPACE over the given dir or simply:
ALT+SHIFT+ENTER to get sizes of all subdirs.

Real time updating of dir sizes is beyond of the gcmd reach, I'm
afraid... gcmd uses FAM for monitoring dir changes, and FAM notifies
about the changes only for previously requested dirs. It's virtually
impossible to subscribe to every single dir in the whole fs.

Size sorting for dirs is broken, I'll try to fix it
