It would be a great addition to allow the user to custom define their status bar. The rest of sublime-text is already configurable so it makes sense the status bar should too and it seems like it should be simple to do.
In Preferences, the current status bar could be something like:
"statusbar_text": "Line " + sublime.statusbar.cursorpos_line + ", Column " + sublime.statusbar.cursorpos_col + sublime.statusbar.actionmessages + sublime.statusbar.fullwidthspacer + "Spaces: " + sublime.statusbar.tabwidth + "\t" + sublime.statusbar.syntaxtype
