I won't add geometry if I were you, I think its pretty
convenient to let those thing appear at the bottom or top and
nowhere else cluttering the client area with notifications (like
nasty popup dialogues). I also think you shouldn't implement a
progress bar - people who are smart know how to use dzen like a
statusbar if they need it (- if dzen supports reading from stdin
like dwm, you can do following to have a status bar:

echo [=== ]
do what you like
echo [=================== ]
do what you like
echo [================================= ]
do what you like
echo [==========================================]
} | dzen
