The reason Rudel uses the CEDET one vs the built-in Emacs one is that it
needs a way to indicate that something is happening without knowing the
overall percentage of the task that is actually complete. I believe this
is commonly known as "pulsing" or a "spinner".

We could probably implement this as an addition to the built-in progress
reporter in subr.el; would this be a welcome feature?
