I wrote this on the AppStore but wanted to share it here too in case you don't read the comments there:

Can you please add support for more status states like busy, dnd, on the phone, etc. I know some apps/messengers don't have all these, but in those cases the status could be set to the most similar one with a custom message displayed.
Also talking about custom messages please add support for it, like Away and custom message set to for example "went to the cinema" so we can create many combinations as we want ( like adium behaves and saves them for access on the menu bar ).
Thanks for this software and hope you continue to improve it and to add features as it's really helpful for all of us who use multiple IM apps.
