Display progress to locally logged in users.

There are tasks I perform–usually a fix of some sort–that take a while to complete. However, because I execute these scripts remotely using a different account on the machine, the user can’t see when it has completed or if anything is happening. I’d like to be able to display a progress bar to them so I don’t have to call them back and tell them it finished. The next step is to use it in fully automated tasks where the user needs to be aware that the task is running.

Is there a way I can have that level of visual feedback?
