Wait Cursor with Text

P: n/a
Does anyone know of an wait-type cursor that can show text beside the
hourglass? I'd like to display status messages beside the hourglass while
not allowing the user to click anything...

Okay, but what about programmatically setting status text to appear beside
(but part of) the cursor itself? Picture an hourglass cursor with text
appearing to the right indicating percentage done...
