Cross-toolkit UI Progress Tracking
When doing complex processing that has to report progress indication to
the user, things can get complex quick. Often, we don't know beforehand
how many work unit our processing will have, because knowing it depends
on another work unit for which the progress should also be reported to
the user. One example of such situation is processing files after having
collected them. When we start the process, we don't know how many files
we'll collect, so it's hard to set a maximum value on our progress bar.
``jobprogress`` handles that.
Also, most of the time, we want to run our task in a separate thread so
the GUI stays smooth. ``jobprogress`` takes care of synchronizing the
threaded task and the GUI.
For now, only PyQt is supported, but the toolkit specific layer is
pretty thin, so it should be easy to add new toolkits.
