Here's something that does progress reporting and credentials, but
does it only to stdin/out/err, so it would need some graphical thing
(with a "cancel" thing too that returns an error).

This patch is obviously on top of the five patches I sent out yesterday.

You can test the progress reporting by giving it a crazy big git
repository that doesn't actually contain any dives, so you can do

     ./subsurface git://git.hohndel.org/subsurface.git[master]

or something equally insane.

The credentials currently only support username/password setup. I
suspect that to do something sane (ie ssh private key exchange) we'd
have to use some libssh2, because the libgit2 interfaces don't seem to
have anything like that.
