Really? I'm thinking:

  * Just after every command is issued (better safe than sorry)
  * At the end of a commit (as well as at the beginning, per above)
  * At the end of the report for update/switch/diff

Each point will be a single line of code, so adding lots of them should
be no problem. And it should introduce no new round trips except when
authentication is required.
