Hmm, yes, I used gentoo for a while, and having a huge collection of
small files would be one case where an indication of just how far
through the file-list we were would be a pretty good indication of how
done the command was.  I suppose it would be better for the average
gentoo user too, since it wouldn't flood the screen so much.  Such an
option would be fairly easy to implement since we already output such a
value for how far we are through the file list in the modern --progress
output.  Perhaps something like updating this on a single line:

Transferred 4 files.  Scanned 49% of 58394 files.
