My biggest problem with this, with our current icon, and with
http://bomahy.nl/hylke/typing.gif is that the animation is very small and hard

I prefer a keyboard over a thought bubble, but I don't have a strong opinion.
I'm also cool with getting rid of the icon and using text ("this buddy is
typing a message") instead.
