Looking at what might be involved there to do this correctly (given
that one would want to be able to match arbitrary mode line list
elements etc. and the mode line format is nontrivial.) I think I'll
make that function a back burner project and just add another knob
instead. The big question for me right now is what to name the knob,
believe it or not.
