If I understand you write you mean the messages
	Installing ...
	Installing ...
echoed to the terminal. I agree, they are probably useless, but I like
them ;-). THe GUI installer shows the very same thing in the status line
at the bottom of the window. Well, more or less at the same time, save
some Event processing which cannot be sensible improved due to the
problem that on windows I cannot fork with Tk loaded.

In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high,
men were real men, women were real women, and small furry
creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry
creatures from Alpha Centauri.
