Bug Description

Chatted about this with kirkland at UDS during closing announcements.

With new byobu using tmux which only has one status line, it would be nice if we could configure multiple status lines and switch between them with a hot key. Perhaps have one status line for system monitoring (cpu/memory/net traffic etc) and another for more static info like version of Ubuntu and IP address.

ProblemType: Bug
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 11.10
Package: byobu 4.37-0ubuntu1
Uname: Linux 3.1.0-999-generic x86_64
ApportVersion: 1.23-0ubuntu4
Architecture: amd64
Date: Mon Nov 7 14:09:10 2011
PackageArchitecture: all
ProcEnviron:
 PATH=(custom, user)
 SHELL=/bin/bash
ScreenRC:

SourcePackage: byobu
UpgradeStatus: No upgrade log present (probably fresh install)

I like this idea! Basically, I'll bind a hot key (maybe ctrl/alt/shift and F5 or F7) and allow you to cycle through multiple different status lines.

Shift-F5 will cycle through one or more tmux_right lines as you define them in ~/.byobu/status. I'll ship 2 by default. Try it out and let me know what you think!
