There are two independent issues:

1)  what channel is used for sending status information back.
   Async UDP
   In-band escape sequences
   (maybe this is something that you specify in your 'GET' request
   if you're willing to accept them, and something that comes
   back in the header if there's a place to recieve them)

2) What is the nature of the progress report:
    percentage complete
    amount of time remaining
    X out of Y as Strata Rose indicated

I think we can manage to support all combinations of these,
optionally, in the protocol, and then see what actually gets
implemented and supported.
