I propose to add the attributes totalItems and loadedItems to preogress  
events, as a way of dealing with use cases like showing progress in  
downloading an application cache. This allows for firing progress events  
which have total/loaded values on individual items, by defining them as  
referring to the current item in the presence of the totalIems /  

Does that work for the use case?
