Providing accurate progress information during operations

A request we frequently see for Subclipse is to provide reasonably
accurate progress information during long running operations like
checkout, update, commit etc.. A big reason we get this request is that
the Eclipse CVS client provides this.

Is this something that is even remotely feasible with Subversion? We use
JavaHL, but for it to provide support like this, Subversion itself would
have to have the API's to support it. With JavaHL we have a
"notification" process where it notifies us as files are checked out,
updated etc.. What we would probably need is some kind of notifcation up
front that tells us we are going to receive 57 files or 568 kB, or
something like that. We could then use that information to provide
reasonably accurate progress information during the operation.

So setting aside the JavaHL piece for a minute, is this something that the
existing API could provide?
