Progress notifications + idle tasks:
File ops use their own timers for some reason, even though
NautilusProgressInfo has a perfectly usable one. No need to be anal
about shaving off milliseconds (the preparation). Although,
having two timers would allow to have exactly what is needed -
the progress info timer could be started so that the widget appears
in the popover, but that seems needlessly wasteful.
Status??????????????? A possible hack is signaling a task from the
manager so that file tasks can set up the status for waiting, but
the signal doesn’t yet seem to be useful outside file tasks.
Crazy idea: redo the progress widgets so that they always show
the file(s) on which tasks are being performed. Something like:
[small, dim text] Duplicating…
(======================> )
33 MiB/44 MiB - 3 hours remaining (1 KiB/s)
That would lighten the load on tasks/operations/whatchamacallits when
creating progress strings.
The downside is wasting some vertical space, but that might look better
in the end.
A good thing would be minimizing the degree of separation between
tasks and progress info (and their managers), but a problem to solve would
be the viewer stuff in the progress info manager.
Not doing anything about all this for now.
