[Zope-DB] How to send a 'still working' message ?

I have an external python procedure, with some code like this:

for p in some_list:

There are about 10 iterations or more, and each iteration takes about
5 to 10 seconds. So, it would be nice if I could send an html page
with some message like:

'Now working on iteration %i...' % p

and of course another message would be displayed at each iteration.
But how can I do this ???
I need some sort of unbuffered output from my procedure, but I do not
know how to do this.

Thanks in advance,
