FYI: sending xml like this will cause all your Google clients to
update their status lists to the one provided:

<iq type="set" to="myjid at gmail.com" id="99">
  <query xmlns="google:shared-status">
    <status>♫ Artist - Tune</status>
    <status-list show="default">
      <status>Set your status message here</status>
      <status>Set status here</status>
      <status>Google Mail Talking</status>
      <status>GMail Talking</status>

Doing this in something like xmpppy would require that you create the
iq stanza, and add the query element, etc manually.
