To change this you'd have to go into the 'base' module and change how the installation process operates, more specifically what it returns once the installation is complete.

The point of the refresh is so that things like the menu items are loaded. Installing modules shouldn't be something worth dedicating that much customization effort to though, so I'd suggest just opening the module in a new tab (middle mouse button clicking, ctrl+click, etc) to at least keep one tab on the module list view. Or, just use checkboxes and install multiple modules at a time from the list view.

You can also write a module with an empty __init__.py file and an __openerp__.py file that simply 'depends' on the modules you want to install - this installs all modules in a single step.
