Thanks for the hint; indeed, that would be much cleaner.  The only
problem is: Because of my usage patterns the Y-Z-Status matters most
when sending mails with Gnus, but with (display-time) and on a console
most of the mode indicators do not fit into the 80 characters, and my
indicator becomes invisible.  The default-mode-line-format allows me
to put the indicator to the far left where it is always visible.

Thanks again,

Albert.
