That said, is there any way to have some kind of overall progress indicator with an ETA on the entire transfer as well as a transferred bytes/total bytes read-out?
I did make a perl script like this, I don't use it anymore but the idea was to use perl modules:

Basically, use perl Rsync with dry-run option to get the number of files to download, Rsync option outfun set to a function that updates a global variable that stores total
Then display progress bar and use perl Rsync to download the files with outfun option set to a function that updates the progress bar.

It is not difficult, a minimum perl knowledge is required though, but not that much
