We could think of a global setting to either: - disable them completely - enable them - force them to be displayed (for string-only ones) in the app's status bar if any (would be registered with a BWindow:: call (beware, BStatusBar is a progressbar, not what we want)). And make it clear in the docs that they might not be displayed and should not be used for data display. François.
