As it happens, not currently having the ability to test on win32 is the exact reason I personally haven't merged the progressbars patches. That and scripted installs, there's a few other platform / use case oddities that need to be checked out. I want to get to it, but I'm not rushing as it's the kind of thing that doesn't work properly on non/bad ttys.

As far as making testing on win32 easier is concerned, that'd help, but I'm not sure if anyones willing to fork out for a win32 CI box. I actually do have space on a server I have knocking around, but in my case, time and simple remote access are the annoying factors.
