      Description

      When checking out or updating a working-copy of the 42,000 file Mozilla tree, it
      takes about a minute to do the "post-update" revision-bumping of every file.
      
      Performance issues aside, it's really disconcerting for the user to see a
      million file changes zoom by, then the phrase "Updated/Checked out revision N",
      but then just hang there -- no prompt.  The user wonders if the program has
      crashed, or something.  There's no indication that post-update-bumping is going on.
      
      We need to print some sort of message like, "Finalizing working copy...", or
      "Bumping local revision numbers...", and *then*, when the bumping is complete,
      print "Updated/checked out revision N."
      
      I have no idea how easy or hard this task is... but I'm filing it so I don't
      forget about it.  It would be great if someone investigated this (or even did
      the work!)
