Bug#193877: dpkg: It would be nice if md5sum had a progress indicator

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.10
Severity: wishlist

md5sum can take quite a while to process very large files (multi-GB).
It would be useful in these cases to have an option on md5sum to display
a progress indicator, showing which file it is currently processing and
how much of the file has been processed.  Perhaps even a
time-to-completion indication.

This isn't really important for dpkg, but the md5sum util (and sha1sum)
is used for many other purposes.
