PBS - feature request - usage by VM

Dear developers,

I'm looking to start using PBS as our main backup system for Proxmox, 
instead of the good-old-space-hungry vzdump. :-)

During inspection of our test PBS backups, I missed some info about the 
effective use of datastore for each of the backed up VMs. I know it 
isn't straightforward to show due to the way PBS works, but even an 
approximate usage would be good (i.e. chunks shared between different 
VMs counted as usage for each VM backup total size). Maybe some 
calculated value each time a new snapshot is done or after verifying?

Right now only a "size" column is showed, but that's disk size and won't 
help much...

Otherwise I'm seeing quite good incremental numbers right know (I wasn't 
seeing them initially, maybe PVEs had to be upgraded or something was 
fixed later), and the reported restore bug was so fast to check, 
reproduce and fix that I can only tell you:

CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU FOR THIS WONDERFUL WORK.

Regards
