Inquiry - Automatic Pidgin Status Update When Using Software

Good afternoon,
I am simply wondering if there is an easy way to get the Pidgin status 
message to update itself to "Program X in use..." automatically when I 
am using a certain program (thus letting Buddies know that the program 
is in-use, since we are working with a network license). Similarly, the 
status should be changed back to "Available" when the program is 
closed.  I am not much of a programmer, but I can easily follow any 
instructions to make this adjustment if necessary. I would appreciate 
knowing whether or not this is feasible or if a plug-in will need to be 
developed. If a plug-in is required, would someone be kind enough to 
implement one?
