Unfortunately we have no way of knowing what node is currently being
executed, nor how long it will take, or the progress through it. Greg
Stark was working on a way to provide that information from PostgreSQL
for exactly this purpose, but it's not entirely trivial.
Running an EXPLAIN first is out of the question, as that could add a
non-trivial amount of time to the overall query time.
