I don't have a good Internet connexion on my vacation site so I can't get the
emacs repository and I can't test it right now. Could you explain what is the
result ?

Anyway, I was thinking that we could maybe use the echo area to provide globals
information like date/time or unread mail count. These information should not
appear in the *Messages* buffer of course. What is your opinion ?
