[im-status] Append existing status message instead of replacing
Submitted by Nikolai Knopp
Created attachment 212364 Append current song information to existing status messages instead of replacing them.
Currently, the im-status plugin replaces the current status message by the current song information. I prefer it to append the info to my currently set status, such that if I set the status to "@Work" and start listening to music, it would be "@Work ♫ Artist - Title ♫" instead of just "♫ Artist - Title ♫". If I want to just have the current song information, as before, I can manually set an empty status message before pressing Play in Rhythmbox.
Attached is a patch that provides the described behaviour. It does not introduce an option or flag to turn the behaviour on and off, as the old behaviour can be acquired by manually emptying the status message in the IM-application manually.
