OK, so we fork off a background process, trap the signals so Apache can't
kill it, close STDIN, STDOUT, and STDERR so Apache will disconnect from the
browser, and put a meta refresh in the page that reloads another page every
10 seconds that tracks the progress of the first process.  It'd require
some careful checking to make sure that process was the only one that could
be tracked that way to avoid security issues though.
