Would it be better to filter the repositioning
from SystemProgressMorph>>#reposition, rather than blocking the setting of
the domain value?

The stated reason for it is:  "This should at least help with cases where a
notifier/conformer/informer pops up during a large package load and gets
hidden behind the progress bar morph."

Why not fix THAT then?  I just struggle with the idea of making Squeak's
progress bar look weird 100% of the time, by de-centering it, "just in
case" a problem happens 1% of the time.  Sorry Tim.   -1
