 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.
