Since the Atompub installer has taken the route of a progress bar:
I think it'd be good to make all the slow-loading pages (ie. Imports,  
Upgrades, Installs, Anything else that takes a long time processing) to  
use the same style progress indicators, It would be benificial to users if  
its a consistant design throughout WordPress..

I'll have a look at the code that Ronald has used on the Atompub installer  
and see if it'll be useful as a generic progress bar, else i'll have a  
look around and see what else can be used :)
