Re: Progress bar again

   If there is good case for it, one possibility would be to do
   something similar for cp and mv.

When using translators (like ftpfs, nfs, etc) on GNU/Hurd, quite nice
to know when the transfer is boged down or not.

I once suggested a "progress bar" idea to someone (forgot who), the
idea was not to have a "progress _bar_" but just some kind of status
indication. That is, something like this (the percent bit could
actually be ditched):

$ mv -v file1 file2
`file1' -> `file2' 50% [512/1024]
                        ^^^ ^^^^ Amount to be copied/moved/removed.
                        Amount copied/moved/removed.

Just an idea for someone...
