I looked around but didn't find a quick way to do this. I eventually  
found a slightly different idea (and, actually nicer-looking) by  
adding, at the top of the <pre> with the progress info, a heading  
that dynamically shows what the link checker is doing at the time.

What do you think?

I'm also wondering, for the sake of screen real estate, if it would  
make sense to have (on results page only) the options collapsed into  
hidden state? That would, however, be inconsistent with the other two  
validators, where the options are hidden in main interface and shown  
for re-check.
