Progress bar is written to STDOUT, and disabled when command is piped. Progress
advances with $progress->tick(), and completes with $progress->finish().
Process bar also indicates elapsed time and expected total time.

# `wp user generate` ticks progress bar each time a new user is created.
# $ wp user generate --count=500
# Generating users  22 % [=======>                             ] 0:05 / 0:23
