I suppose maybe I wasn't clear enough then. I wasn't looking for
timing information, but rather an approximate percentage towards
completion. This seems quite possible (keep track of how many subtrees
left to process, whatever), though I don't know enough about the
compiler internals to say how well such a thing would integrate.
