In bug 710409, status messages were moved to the right. Now that we have filtering and compression of these messages, I think it would be a good time to move them back to the left.
Status messages on the right creates large gaps which makes it harder to read the conversation. It also means that you have to scan between the right and left sides if you are interested in the status messages (which is more likely with filtering/compression).
