Just to make it clear, the code in in Bugzilla is just some reference
code that I can use as a guide. I wrote it from the point of view of
trying to work out if it was possible (and for educational
enlightenment). If I get the go ahead from you on the principle then I
will refine it and add it into the actual code (and add support for the
progress bar value.) I'll then post the patch for review.

Cheers,

Rob
