The messaging stuff is mostly independent of this. The problem is the fact that it's not really async. After the download is done emacs hangs between 0.5 and 5 seconds while the installation is happening. And that happens for each download. So it's essentially not really achieving anything, but it carries the coat of code complexity.

But just to be clear. This is just for package installation. Async refreshing is much smoother and won't be removed (though it's still due for a bit of polishing).
