What I think is important is for the user to be given visual ASSURANCE
that the boot process has not gotten "stuck" (e.g., the line of periods
emitted by long-running processes).
If the indication can track fraction_completed - so much the better -
but I do not expect the user to leave the room if the boot process takes
longer than he expects. Seeing "only 25% to go" is <frosting>; the
<chocolate_cake> is knowing "no problems thus far".
