How do I show status for XMLin (XML::Simple)

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have a very large XML file to import then shove into MySQL.  This is
all working perfectly.  However, XMLin() is taking a rather long time to
import the data so I would like to show some kind of status info while
it is working.  Here's a highly simplified example of the data:

            <Name>Budget Widget</Name>
            ... { lots more nested fields }

With <Product> repeated about 8000 times.  I'd love to be able to dump
the sku and/or name as it is imported.  Can someone point me in the
right direction?
