You could look at the .TYD and .TYI file sizes and compare to the .MYD and .MYI, but that
can be deceptive.  If the table is really big, and has lots of indexes, the generation of
the indexes might go slower and slower -- hence any math on the sizes would be optimistic.

And under Windows more misleading--often, if a file is small, the directory listing will
show 0 until the very end.
