I am building an incremental search replacement. It provides feedback as it goes with the view.set_status(...) function.
That function takes a key under which your status should be stored, and you can erase or update your key at will, and the actual test in the status bar will consist of your status and all the other statuses set by other plugins or sublime itself.
Sublime provides status of its own, e.g., "Line 981, Column 82" or if you have something highlighted, the number of matches. Of course, in this case *I* am the one highlighting the matches, but for some reason Sublime is providing a message about the items I have highlighted for me.
My question is: what is the key sublime uses itself? I want to override what it is saying because it's redundant and (in this case) misleading. Is this possible?
