#6 gobal status change

Core (19)
Willy Wonka

The current interface allows for global connect and
disconnect, but not for global status changes. I think
it would be highly useful to have the ability to change
to 'busy', for example, with a single select rather
than going through each interface's status mode.

    Not possible as status are different for the different
    protocols... Maybe we could add a status code but it would
    be too much work for the feature, i think.

    As of today, AIM and ICQ have three settings, Online, Away,
    and Offline.... A quick fix would be to add a menu item such
    as "Set Status Away", whih does as said with ICQ/AIM, and
    with the other protocols sets the status to something the
    user chooses in the preference dialog, with an intelligent
    default chosen.

    You already can set every status to "Away"... : Chat/Set
    Away menu. For other statuses like Busy, there's nothing yet.
