Yes, that would be very nice.

Squeak was recompiling the ObjectMemory hierarchy due to a changed class
definition. There are a lot of methods to compile, so this takes a fair
amount of time without indicating any progress (because progress is
measured by the position of the stream being filed in).

Seasoned Smalltalker's Hint #43:
If it's taking longer than expected, hit Alt-. (or whatever your user
interrupt key is) to see what it does. Chances are good that you catch
it doing some very stupid things. Of course, sometimes it does very cool
things which just take a while.
