Show current symbol/function in status bar (near current language)

I love the built-in symbol browser (Cmd+R), but many times I'd like to just quickly see which symbol/function I'm currently in. For instance, in BBEdit, the symbol browser is "always on" and updates the current item based on where you are in the document.

I like how the symbols menu is accessed via Cmd+R in Sublime Text 2 (rather than being always on/always visible), so how about have the option to show the current symbol in the status bar (near the currently selected Language, for instance)?

I think this feature would be very useful to many different people, and for me personally, would put the final nail in the coffin of all other Mac OS X text editors :-)
The Function Name Display package does that already.
You're absolutely right! Thanks a lot for that ... though it would be nice to have a built-in solution :-)
