Maia - file indexing is in background, but I still have progress dialogs popping up

Having the file indexing occur in the background is very nice, and removes a major complaint about intellij vs eclipse.
But still there are lots of other progress dialogs which pop up for misc. file operations. I am wondering if these too could happen in the background?
Here are some of the ones I see.  I get some of these when I do a clean compilation of my project; Others pop up if I do a VCS bringover with alot of updated/new files.

Scanning files to index
Building JavaScript indices
Building indices
Updating modified files


Thanks

Hello Alex,

"Updating modified files" is already background in the current codebase (don't
remember if we changed this before the EAP or after). "Building JavaScript
indices" will eventually be gone altogether.

In IU-90.94, I still see "Loading Files..." progress dialog popup each time I do a clean build of my project.
The progress bar says "Building indices..."    Hopefuly this will be in background also..

Thanks,

As of IU 90.122, it seems more of the popups are gone. I don't the popup for javascript anymore, but when I do a clean rebuild of my project I still see
"Loading files.. / Building indices..." pop up twice.

Can you put that in the background too?

Thanks,

Actually the main remaining not-background part is local history updates,
and we're working to put this into background now.

Loading Files - Scanning files to index
keeps popping up too.
Its especially painful when the JDK keeps getting scanned (see my other thread http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/thread/284557)
