Is there a reason the partition tool GParted doesn't show a percentage finish number initially?

Is there a reason the partition tool GParted doesn't show a percentage finish number initially?

I am using GParted more, and it seems to do a reliable work.

"Well, there is already a drop-down box which gives you status updates on the current operation, but if you don't know the terminology in the partition modification process, it's of no use to you! Your idea has been suggested a few times before, and will likely be added in the future (hint: nag them for a feature request =] )

If you want a temporary solution, the resize2fs tool has a progress bar and does resizing of ext2 and ext3 file systems."
