Hum, i tested this for a while now, and I think it's OK, but I think 
it's a bit confusing that "italics" now mean "user changed status" *or* 
"user is away". I would prefer "grayed out" for users being away (this 
is sort of intuitive, I think, and it is similar to the buddylist) and 
italics for users who changed status.

But in any case I think none of these text decorations should have two 
meanings. ;)
