Update of bug #52743 (project wget):

                  Status:                    None => Wont Fix               
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:


Wget is built entirely without multi-threading support. Hence, the idea of
having the progress printed from a second thread is not feasible.

There have been multiple attempts in the past to add threading support to
Wget, but the old code base is really hard to refactor.

Instead, do take a look at GNU Wget2, a rewrite of Wget in C which was built
with concurrency in mind.
