I am pretty sure that there was a bug report about this before, but I
can't find it now. Ah, here:
No one else commented at the time and I opted to stick with what we
already had. Do you think we should just turn the progress reporting
back on for -i=mi2? How about you, Nick?

Or come up with some other way to do this that avoids the need for the
hack. The problem was that we were calling the MI load progress hook
through the wrong interpreter. We need to figure out how to do this
First question: Should typing "load" at the MI prompt issue +download
updates? Currently it does. It also issues the CLI's updates.
Second question: Should typing "-interpreter-exec console load" issue
+download updates? Currently it does the same as "load" and
that's the right thing to do so this is the same as the first question.
Jim, maybe you've got an opinion on this? Apple seems to make more use
of the CLI support than anyone else :-)
