The console already provides this type of feedback while installing a  
plugin.  Downloading JDBC drivers using the db wizard provides it as  
well.  It should be pretty straightforward to use that same ajax  
widget to show progress info in the deployment portlet if that's  
desirable.  I can't really think of any other console actions that  
take a non-trivial amount of time to complete.  Maybe start/stop  
components in some cases.

Best wishes,
