It also displays a transfer rate:
100% |*******************************| 680 KiB 264.59 KiB/s 00:00 ETA
The final transfer rate displayed will be based on the current time as
of the call to progressmeter(1), and since this call is currently made
after waiting for the "cmd" to exit, it _will_ reflect the total
execution time. I don't think making this display less accurate for
the sake of eliminating two lines of code would be a good trade-off.
