It's a nice idea but not so easy to implement in practice because all
the work is actually done with a python script that's separate from the
frontend. The script calls several other tool like ffmpeg,
mythtranscode, mplex, mythreplex, dvdauthor etc to do the actual
processing. It would be vary difficult to calculate any sort of
meaningful progress that could be shown in a dialog like the DVD rip
import one.
