I've now run into the opposite problem, which is "Too long with no output
(exceeded 10m0s): context deadline exceeded".

So what I really need is a progress bar that writes something to the
console at least every 9 minutes or so as long as it is still working. The
offending package was rust.

A single dot as progress indicator instead of the flurry of dots is
probably the answer (plus doing it less often).
