Problem description:

Currently the editor has its own status line showing information that could comfortable fit into the global status line. With wide screen monitors the 
horizontal space is quite limited, so saving one line for source code is a plus. NetBeans seems to be the only IDE  that actually has a special status line in 
the editor.


Eliminate the the editor status line by moving information it currently displays into the main status line. See the UI spec (maybe needs a refresh):


Note that even though I'm filing this issue as part of the 6.1 planning, the real intention is to address this issue in one of the upcoming releases.

Progress indication area, owned by Tomas, is a part of the status line. Assigning to Tomas for now.

Changing TM to future. We'll get back to this request after 6.1.
