 Yeah, was thinking we can do a JSON request to get the dir sizes as soon
 as the page loads. That would make it much faster.

 But then, what's the real debug value of knowing these dir sizes?
 - We know WP's size anyways, not even sure we need to get that.
 - Knowing the `/plugins` and `/themes` dir sizes tells us... What exactly?
 Perhaps breaking that into individual plugins and themes sizes may be a
 bit more useful, but... Don't really see this as essential info.
 - Knowing the `/uploads` dir size perhaps may be useful in some limited

 Then the size we calculate is not exactly the "size on disk", so the
 numbers are off. A more comprehensive size can be seen in the hosting
 control panel. I'm even thinking we should mention that somewhere there.

 In these terms I'm thinking we should either stop showing the sizes, or
 move them to another "section" and load them on demand (AJAX request when
 the user clicks a button, etc.).
