Browse should give an indication that a download is in progress

Browse should give an indication that a file download initiated from Browse is in progress. One gets a notification to confirm you want to download the item, and one gets a notification when the download is complete, but one does not get any information about download progress without switching to the Journal view. This is especially important for those on low-speed network connections.
If one does not know that the Journal view shows download progress information for Browse, one will never spot that it can show this information unless they switch to the Journal view while a download is in progress. This is a hidden feature I would have never thought to look for had someone not mentioned it in another bug report.
We should show some sort of download in progress indication in browse, even if it is just an animated icon (perhaps an arrow going down into a box, or a small progress bar?). Otherwise there is no information within Browse that the download is still going on, and no information presented to a user tends to be confusing.
Tested in OLPC 10.1.3 os351 and a daily SoaS F14/0.90 build.
