No.  I'm saying that progress used to be printed by default, i.e.,
there was no command line option to turn it off.  But due to slowness
with Windows console printing, we made it so that you had to specify
-v to enable it.  Note that on Unix, where I first wrote
AVRDUDE/AVRPROG, this was not a problem.

If you are really set on the hash marks, I'd at least like the number
of hash marks printed to be a fixed number, like a percentage.  So
that part way through, the display might look something like this:

  Writing: |###########                              |  29% ETA 22.3 sec

Should have one for reading also.  Does that seem reasonable?

If you you'd like to work on a patch for that, great.  If not, just
let me know and I'll work on it.  Also, I would like to pull this
could out from under the -v option and use a seperate -q option to
disable it instead of using the -v option to enable it.
