Good point.

with providing actual progress feedback. For example, Eclipse does not bring up the progress
dialog if an operation is fast enough. This is a subtlety left to progress monitor implementations

Yes, but in Eclipse the decision is based on a timer and it doesn't
need support from a ProgressMonitor interface or the monitored

What level of details would copy(File,File) provide when copying a
deep directory structure? What performance penalty would it cause.
What about users who don't need progress monitoring?
