      Hmm, interesting...and thanks! These two plugins seem to use the
      statusline for the progress indicator. I thought of that, and
      abandoned the idea when I noticed that the status lines weren't being
      populated all the way during processing...but later investigation
      showed me that's because 'ruler' gets reset from one of the speed-up
      options set by the plugin (I don't remember which). At the time, I was
      still hoping to use :echon to output the progress indicator, which I
      also had to abandon. My eventual goal is to use the full screen width
      (or pretty close to it) for the progress bar. Is there a good way to
      get this for an individual status line? I didn't think so, whereas
      using an ":echo" type command, &columns basically does the trick.

      I'll give it a shot using the status line (maybe making use of a
      plugin, but I'm hoping for eventual inclusion into the upstream, so
      maybe just pulling code from them). Hopefully it will be more usable.
      For me, the screen flashes quite a bit *without* the progress
      indicator, so I'm not certain it will be, but perhaps the somewhat
      static status line will be more readable than a quickly flashing
      message at the bottom of the window.
