Hi John-

I added progress methods (as well as filter abort) to these two filters
(vtkCutter and vtkGeometryFilter). They are available now from CVS 
or tomorrow from the nightly release.

As far as plans for progress methods: I've added a few more to some filters
that I've found, if anyone else knows of any please post to the list and we'll
add them.
