Status bar - messages and new panels

I think this has been mentioned before but I couldn't find anything in the
archives at all, just references to issues being fixed relating to it but
no info.

1. How does one send a message into the status bar?

2. Is it possible for a plugin to add a new component to the status bar to
display it JLabel of its current state?

Thanks
Mark

WindowManager.getInstance().getStatusBar(project).setInfo(
"your message"
);
}

Excellent - is it possible for a plugin to add a JLabel/panel into the
status bar at all?

in case someone else also wonders (i did) how to unset the custom info again:

WindowManager.getInstance().getStatusBar(project).setInfo(null);
