Once they figure out that status message = personal message. If we  
change that, then we have two seemingly separate items that really do  
the same thing (setting status message “also” changes personal  
message), or one item that's useless (setting status message doesn't  
do anything to MSN accounts).

MSN is not the only protocol we support.
