This would involve specifying a callback function for each intermediate
step; callers would have to specify their own callback function, but
pretty much every caller would want to do the same thing, i.e. report
how much of the operation is done).  If the URL reporting is too
verbose, I think it makes more sense to tweak it, rather than opening up
an additional mostly useless interface.
