At some point (more than a year ago), I added a "--print detailed-progress" option to new-run-webkit-tests to try and emulate the output that old-run-webkit-tests did (printing the directory name followed by a dot at a time for each test).

The code was always something of a hack since the default mode (running tests in parallel sharded by directory) can't really be mapped onto that style of output. So, the detailed progress only worked if you weren't running things in parallel at all, or if you were running in "experimental-fully-parallel" mode where we put each test into a shard and did roughly try to run them in order.

There was also a fair amount of complexity to handle the tests coming in that way and printing things out.

Given the year since, I don't think I've used this feature a single time, and I haven't heard of anyone else using it, either. 

So, I'd like to remove it.
