Add a freespace-progressbar to Thunar's properties dialog

Add progressbar to properties dialog

This simple patch adds a progressbar showing the amount of used space.
It helps to visualise the remaining space more quickly than by having to read the numbers/percentages.

See the patch and screenshot attached.

Updated patch; This packs freespace label and progress bar into a box and makes the box entirely graphical (no text shown), thus small.

I generally like that, but keep in mind that it doesn't look equally good with all engines, because not all of them "vertically collapse" the progressbar if there is no label.

So while it looks great and appealing with the Murrine engine, it does look very bulky with the Xfce engine (although we could try to fix that in the engine itself).
