Yes, that would be better.
Perhaps for things like "phase" we could change the name of the phase
I was wondering if nested progress bars would do bettter to show all
of the nested levels, e.g.
[==============] phase (1/3) / fetching files
Something like the reiserfs tools, if you've ever used them. At the
moment as the text and total-to-do changes it seems unpredictable;
this conveys that there are 200 things to do for this particular phase.
