Add Progress & Message functions to Python tool (similar to R tool)

The R tool has AlteryxProgress() and AlteryxMessage() functions for generating notifications in the Results window https://help.alteryx.com/current/designer/r-tool, however the Python tool does not. Since I'm writing more Python code than R code I'd like to have similar functionality available in the Python tool, e.g. an Alteryx.Progress() function and an Alteryx.Message() function.

This would be super helpful @jdrummey , especially since Python tools often may run for a while without any visible indication that they are doing anything.

I use a bunch of Print statements in the result window to achieve the same - but agree that an explicit progress message would be much better.
