Lightroom: Display destination paths with export progress bars...

I'm in the process of running multiple parallel exports of a batch of files. I'd love to be able to see where they're going while Lightroom is crunching them.

Lightroom has the lovely and convenient ability to both show me a summary of the processes ("7 operations in progress...") and also with a few clicks I can go through and see each individual progress bar.

Unfortunately, the individual progress bars only tell me which file is currently being processed, and don't let me know where the files are being saved. It says "Export 251 jpeg files", but I wish that it said "Export 251 jpeg files to /path/subfolder"

For workflows that involve a pile of images being exported in multiple versions in multiple folders, it would be really helpful to be able to see where they're going.

This would both be useful as a quick check to make sure that I selected the right export preset, and it would also be helpful in distinguishing between the concurrent processes if I want to cancel one export. (Since the parallel exports have the same filenames, it's sometimes hard to tell them apart...)

This strikes me as a really easy little bit of info to add in in an easy and elegant way, so I hope someone from Adobe's reading...
