I would like to see some sort of "wandering monkey"
(don't know, if it is called so) instead of only
progressing dots. This would make it a bit easier to
decide, if the cbmcopy is still working and not hung up.
What I'm calling of is some fine ASCII art:
for each of the former "dot progress". This decreses
the number of dots printed by a factor of 4 and gives
easier to watch output.
