I have also noticed the flickering when using the command line

A related problem is, that committing via DVC.el shows the progress
bar as garbage in the bzr output buffer.

So it would be really nice to have a way to switch that progress bar

The following ideas could be implemented:
* a --no-progressbar command line switch
* a --show-progressbar command line switch
* a setting in a configuration file (not sure which one and how many
  aspects should be configurable)
