Sorry, I don't really care about non-python.

However things are not so simple as that.  My python code employs an
adaptive algorithm (like TCP congestion control) that adjusts the interval
of progress updates to target 100ms of real time.  If you don't do that you
risk consuming too much overhead doing the progress update, for fast
simulations, or not updating for a long time for very slow simulations.
