I switch multiprotocol-IM-client every few weeks and I'm still waiting for
the perfect one. I have used gaim, kde-ones, gnome-ones, centericq,
bitlbeed...and a lot more. Lately I'm playing with python based gajim
(jabber only)

For status bar notifications I recommend any inotify based monitor (can be
used to detect any filesystem change: new messages in your inbox, new log
messages in your IM directory...) It's the best in terms of resource
consumption (but require a modern kernel).

If I had the time I'll add a mini-icon space on the top-right corner and the
possibility to change it with a special a patch, of
course. I suppose this can be done with a external tool, xsetbg? some OSD
