Better yet, how about generalizing progress reporting
between modules?  For instance, it could look like this...

(defun make-progress-reporter (format-string
                               min-value max-value &optional current-value)
  "Return a list suitable for reporting operation progress with 

FORMAT-STRING must contain a single %-sequence, `%d', which will
be substituted with the progress percentage.  If, for some
reason, you need to change this string, simply create a new

MIN-VALUE and MAX-VALUE designate starting (0% complete) and
final (100% complete) states of operation.  Optional
CURRENT-VALUE specifies the progress by the moment you call this
function.  You should omit it in most cases."
  (let ((reporter (list min-value
                        (if (fboundp 'current-time) (list 0 0 0) nil)
                        (/ (float (- max-value min-value)) 100.0)
    (progress-reporter-update reporter (or current-value min-value))

(defun progress-reporter-update (reporter value)
  "Report progress of an operation in the minibuffer.

First parameter, REPORTER, should be the result of a call to
`make-progress-reporter'.  Second, VALUE, determines the actual
progress of operation; it must be between MIN-VALUE and MAX-VALUE
as passed to `make-progress-reporter'.

This function tries to be very inexpensive.  If Emacs has
`current-time' function, then it will update minibuffer at most 5
times a second.  In any case, it never prints same percentage
more than once."
  (when (and (>= value (car reporter))
             ;; Update time is nil if we don't have `current-time'
             ;; function anyway.
             (or (null (cadr reporter))
                 (let ((update-time  (cadr reporter))
                       (current-time (current-time)))
