I've been tinkering around with Statuses now (both D6 and D7) and I'm very impressed with the work you've put into the module. I read on the project page that you have plans for a new version for D7, and I was wondering what those plans are. I would personally love seeing an entity based system that utilizes rules and views for as much as possible. Perhaps core comments as well. That would make Statuses really become the ultimate social communications framework for drupal because it would be extremely flexible. Sort of like what Commerce guys did when they created Commerce.
What are your thoughts on this?
