Description

I would not be surprised if this has been discussed before and that the current loading dialog is temporary; however, if not, this is an important feature for a new user. When installing a plugin, for example quassel-core, my system took 7 minutes to complete the setup. The majority of that time was spent running the command "pkg install -q -y irc/quassel-core", though some of it was in the creation of the jail. Instead of just saying "please wait", the dialog could go from "creating plugin jail" to "installing plugin package," with progress as reported by pkg. Even without the plugin install progress or even a download rate, it would be nice to see that the delay is a result of the time it takes for pkg to download and install the package as opposed to a plethora of other possible reasons. This can apply to other dialogs, but I noticed this in particular for plugins given the amount of time it can take to install one.

I feel it is important to add that this has a non-zero priority since the UI is frozen for the entirety of plugin install, which can take 6-10min and can seem like the UI is frozen when in fact "pkg" is just taking while.
