Ok, I might just be confused about this (nothing unusual :-)

In Uploader.js, I see

     fluid.defaults("fluid.uploader", {
         totalProgressBar: {
             type: "fluid.progress",
             options: {
                 selectors: {
                     progressBar: ".fl-scroller-table-foot",
                     displayElement: ".total-progress",
                     label: ".total-file-progress",
                     indicator: ".total-progress"

Is this the type of construct that is no longer necessary?
