You mean that no info whatsoever is given when unzipping? I didn't pay
much attention to the project progress bar, but I did notice that with
big projects it takes a while to show so I presumed it was unzipping.
I thought we could just as well start showing the progress bar before
we start zipping. An empty progress bar is information enough I would
think, and the rest of the filling of the progress bar is hardwired,
after certain operations, so the bar is already incrementing in steps
(five or something I thought).

You definitely notice it on the XO with 1mb+ files.
