Oh yes, you can do that now with some clients (I know Psi does it). I
keep worrying that someone will post a 5k story about their wonderful
trip to Aruba ("OMG I just got back from Aruba and I had such an awesome
time, here's the full trip report.....") and use that as their status
message while they sleep off the trip. ;-)

But maybe I need to stop worrying so much...
