As a matter of fact, when executed with the "-v" option, the shell  
command zip does provide a kind of progress indicator (a sequence of  
dots) during compression.
Even if it is drawned among verbose information...
Anyway, do you think it would be possible to catch this "progress  
indicator" in order to update a progresss bar in Revolution?
