Your approach would work, but I think the feature that Chris is looking for
would be much appreciated by many. I agree with Gerd that Chris' request
is completely reasonable and within the scope of what SQuirreL should do.
In fact, in addition to printing the time taken since an in-progress query
has been initiated, I've long thought that SQuirreL should have some visual
indicator that a query is in progress that captures the user's attention
besides the "Running query...". Something like a progress bar or swirling
image or such. This has been a prominent feature in other competing
clients for some time.
