Bug Description

I would like to include two UI fixes in the next indicator-messages release (due later today):

1. unread message counts are not drawn as lozenges

This is a regression from Precise and one of the defining visual features of the menu.

2. messaging menu should be hidden when no applications use it (bug #1045039)

The new design doesn't include the "Set up..." items anymore. This fix hides the menu when it would otherwise be empty.

Can we please make a ui freeze exception for those two?

Does not affect translations, so no issues from the translations team.

#1 is a regression so +1 for fixing that
#2 is a nice feature as I know some people don't use the messaging menu and don't want to see it.

+1 from the Docs Team.

Adding Ubuntu docs task so we remember to explain why the messaging menu doesn't show up.

I tested the fix for the default visibility, but it does not seem to work. Reported bug 1056457.
