I think that's a good idea; anybody got a comment here?

This could be implemented kinda simply by looking at the mode line
string after it's been generated, and shortening spaces if the text is
too long.

For instance, the mode line here says

U:**-  *unsent bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla*   All L23     (Message MML Fly A

and then I can't see any more.  The spaces before "All" and after "L23"
could be compacted in these situations...

It'd have to be a user option, of course.
