"Waiting for agent initialization to finish" needs to be more detailed.

Bug Description

Now that we have workload status it's easy to see what units are doing, right now it looks like this:

1. juju deploy foo
2. Really fast updates with obvious progress that Juju is working
3. A long "Waiting for agent initialization to finish" with no updates
4. Really fast updates with obvious progress from the workload status

In the interest of Juju's goal to make the stack observable I'd like to see if we can break down "Waiting for agent..." be more granular. Making that faster is another issue, and we should do that, but it'd be nice if this feature in Juju could be as granular as workload status. This is especially apparent in local provider deployments where there is a ton of initial IO hammering the disks.

So something more like "Downloading agent", "Unpacking agent", "Registering agent with controller" "Reticulating splines", and so on. This would show me that there is progress happening instead of one long "Waiting for agent..."
