This would really be a great feature for tracking long uploads in the background!!!

Details on the Win7 Taskbar API here:

he ITaskbarList3::SetProgressState and ITaskbarList3::SetProgressValue methods modify the state of the taskbar progress bar. There are several states available for applications to use: indeterminate, paused, error and normal. The managed equivalent is the Taskbar.ProgressBar.State and Taskbar.ProgressBar.CurrentValue static properties, as well as the Taskbar.ProgressBar.MaxValue property.

Alternate method:

Applications that take advantage of the built-in file operation functionality, added to the Windows Shell in Windows Vista, automatically get taskbar progress support for free. If you use the Win32 SHFileOperation function or IFileOperation interface, your taskbar button will automatically light up with progress information, even if you're invoking the APIs from a console application.
