it's not very hard to move a window N pixels at a time in a given direction 
even 1/Nth of a second. just takes a timer and a slot that moves the window 
towards the destination =)

as for shrinking it, one could all sorts of things.. like painting to an 
off-screen pixmap and smoothscaling it down and blitting that to the onscreen 
widget, or you could just use a subset of the interface, e.g. lop off the top 
image keeping just the progress text and icons and moving that to a 
respectable corner.
