Multiplexing on a structure type or on a function call only makes sense if
there is commonality, or if serialization is required.

I don't see much commonality between a fire-and-forget fatal error message,
and a progress bar...
On the other hand, I do see commonality between a modal fatal error, and a
non-modal fatal error, so if/when we implement modal errors in the new
framework, it would possibly make sense to re-use the same struct and/or
