Debugger (enhancement): show progress bar for debug packages

When attaching the Debugger for the first time, there is a dialog which opens to download a set of debug packages. Some of these, such as gcc_x86_debuginfo are very large, and take a while to download and install. It gives the appearance of a frozen app. My suggestion is a progress bar, or even opening a terminal window for the pkgman installation progress.

That's something that's on my eventual to-do list, but isn't feasible with the way it handles the actual package installation right now (it currently just spawns a copy of pkgman under the covers, being able to actually get interim progress updates would require actually doing so via the package kit).

Also, trying to quit Debugger while still installing those should cancel the download process. For now it just waits for it to finish.
