Both gzip and bzip2 -v show a per-file result, and only when -vv is used does bzip2 shows a more fine-grained progress, and that is what I would like to see with lzip -vv.

Bzip2 is a block compressor, and it shows the blocks as it compresses them. Lzip is not a block compressor, so the bzip2 method does not apply. Lzip is like gzip in this regard.

I'll think about this.
