Thank you very much.
(Sorry Dirkjan for the double-post, I forgot to hit "reply all")

Yes, you're right. I'm used to using getters/setters due to my java
background... I'll replace them as soon as possible.

If I understand you correctly you mean to move everything out of ui.py?
This way we won't have to do ui.progress i.e. in merge.py but
something like progress.createprogress()?
Honestly I'd do the opposite, folding progress.createprogress() into
ui.progress() since ui has to be aware of progress.

Actually that's the opposite direction the patch took since it's creation.
Anyway I'll post another collapsed version to compare them ok?

Thanks again for reviewing that patch and for your comments.
