I say good riddance!

For one it was confusing since it was inconsistently reusing the  
visual meaning of the time cursor that means 'frames are changing',  
and it was also totally cryptic to anyone who hasn't read (or has  
forgotten) that line in the log that gives you some number <-> mesh  
faces conversion ratio.

But really, it's not very useful information anyway. It would be much  
more practical to use a progress bar that gives a visual indication  
of how it's progressing, and how much more is remaining to go. I  
would be much more interested in whether I was going to have to wait  
for 5 minutes before I can continue work, than how many faces are  
involved, which may render at any arbitrary kind of speed, depending  
on the shading involved.
