system-tray "accounts logged in" indication

Version: 2.6.1 Keywords: system-tray icon accounts


The system-tray icon for pidgin already changes depending on whether you're available, away, invisible, etc. It seems that it could be further differentiated based on which accounts are presently logged in.

An example of when this would be useful is when a user has logged-out of their personal IM accounts while remaining logged-in to their work IM accounts. Presently, they receive misleading confirmation from the icon that they are 'available' even though that's only true for some of their accounts.

Given the circular nature of the indicator icon, I'd say dividing it into a pie-chart for the accounts would be a good way of handling this. You could be two parts available and three parts logged out, for example.
