hehe.. Yeah, I'd initially hoped that too.
Unfortunately some users still use the older MSN clients, although that
will likely improve over time. But, I've also noticed many people seem
to use both the nickname and the personal message as a status. So they
have two statuses :|
I know it's an abuse of the idea behind it, but I still think there
should be an easier way to view these. Even just making the line edit a
little longer would fix it (only 127 char max for MSN nicks).

Yeah, that'd be good.
