server side 'progress' / output

Bug Description

Hooks and other activity running in the server should be able to provide
progress indicators.

Key uses are for things like reconcile progress, and pre_tip change
hooks that run test suites and the like.

Sketchily we should make sure anything that may invoke complex hooks has
a streaming body; and get trace.note() on the server, and
ui_factory.get_nested_progressbar() to work with that body.

This is non trivial because it can't rely on stdout or stderr to be available - specifically, consider http servers.
