ProgressIndicator (like other user interface elements in version 6) is
designed to have the appearance and behavior of the equivalent
operating system user interface element.  If you feel neither the
appearance (e.g. color, size) nor the behavior (e.g. direction of
animation) is suitable for your purposes then there is no point in
using the built in ProgressIndicator.  If you really wanted something
different you can use Graphics[] to create your own UI elements.  I
would recommend sticking with ProgressIndicator.  That way it will
still look correct if, for example, someone uses your code on a
different operating system.
