My product distributes a large framework on OSX that is made up of a lot of files. To speed up the installation process I use the <showfileunpackingprogress>0</showfileunpackingprogress> setting to greatly speed-up the process since it doesn't bother telling me about each of the thousands of files as they get copied.

Is there a way to do this for the uninstaller as well? My uninstaller is currently running about 5x slower than my installer, and the only thing I can think of that is different is the progress text is enabled in my uninstaller.
