Comment (by fr1a1nky):

 I also can just agree with the majority, the old typing notification was
 much more usefull:

 old version:
 + shows typing rate
 +  L=> estimated text length
 + good indication of typing pauses
 + usefull position (IMHO)
 + nice amusement while waiting for a response ;)
 - ?

 new version:
 + ?
 - disturbs while reading text (IMHO)
 - easy to miss, because your view is rarely at the bottom of a window

 So,at least, there should be the option to choose. Can't see the point why
 therefore a plugin is neccessary. But it seems I still have to use 2.2.1
 for some time...
