Re: [ui-best-practices-working-group] Make WizardDialog.run(...) a bad practice as it block all UI ?

A'n interesting very common example of good practice is the p2 installation wizard, which shows "Pending" in the list of features while looking for content, rather than blocking the whole wizard like many import wizard usually do. This example could be used if we want a guideline on this topic. The only drawback is that there is no "dynamic" progress report (with a progress bar and some text showing up that something is happening), so when it takes very long user can perceive it as stalled whereas it's still running and maybe even close from completion.
