I think it's just a matter of getting used to the icon scheme. It took 
me a week to get used to the new status icons, and it's almost 
subconscious now.

And in regards to "extended away": in most situations, it doesn't really 
matter to me what the exact status is - I just want to know if the user 
is at the keyboard.
