It sounds like CurrentTrack is just changing your status message. I 
believe the API is exposed to allow Pidgin to advertise this as well, 
but doesn't appear to be implemented. A plugin like CurrentTrack would 
be the appropriate place to implement this (by setting the 
PURPLE_STATUS_TUNE independent status on accounts that support it).
