I know we nixed the previous notebook progress bar because it was really bogging things down—but it would be handy to have one, and there are some ASCII-only implementations that probably won’t use as much memory.
It's also tricky because the maintainer of the progress bar we use isn't terribly responsive and wasn't interested in integrating a notebook-aware version last time I checked.
That said, there is a progress bar widget in IPython 2.0 that might be useful.
I also haven't looked into this in a year or so, it's possible the bugs that forced us to drop the notebook-aware progress bar have been fixed.
Any thoughts? I’d be happy to look into it myself.
