[Bug 7765] Maybe progress should be named fetchcachefile or some such instead as that seems much more closely to what is used for. However, I don't quite understand why you would not want more detailed progress events here so you can show a progress bar to the user

Unless you do one progress bar per file (unlikely, given that each file will
typically only take 250ms), you don't know how many bytes the total will be. So
the only way to do a progress bar that I can see is to use the number of files
as the total. Which is what the spec does.

Not sure why we'd use another event name though; can you elaborate?
