This is what sysline traditionally used to do: time, if I recall correctly, system load,
new mail flag, or really just about anything.
Google for terminal plus sysline or status line. Can be set at bottom or top of
terminal. Basically you're setting a so-called scroll region, and use what's left for
the status line.
