Hmmm. It's a decent suggestion, but it sounds annoying.... pseudo code:

def output(line):
    if progress_bar:
        list = alpm_list_add(list, line)

# we'd need an event here
def on_progress_complete():
    for line in list:

I'm not a fan of delayed execution like that, only because I slam my
head against it during the day... /me smirks
