This patch adds some rudimentary support for google talk's shared status extensions to the jabber code in Bitlbee -- since I only use jabber for connecting to google talk, I haven't really put in any code to check if the server supports these extensions.

The more important effect of the patch is to allow you to be invisible on Google Talk with an "/away Extended Away". Also, setting an Away message no longer shows you as idle but merely updates your status message. If you want to be shown as Idle, do "/away Away - message".

Although I understand the wish for setting status messages without going away, using the /away command for this doesn't seem like the right way to do it. After all, the command is called /away, not /status.

(Okay, I admit that /away with no arguments means you're back is a bit odd. :-P)

There should really be a separate command. I intend to implement this as a per-account setting or something like that. And a root command or a global setting to automatically set yourself as away on all accts that support it. /away would probably override that.
