Document Status Display

I think we need some way to display arbitrary additional status-information 
for each document.

The current main use-case for that is the parsing state: I'd like to have an 
icon(or maybe a color) associated with the document that shows 3 states:
- Parsing
- Parsed with serious problems like not found include files(Somehow it should 
be possible to show those problems)
- Parsed, building uses(takes some time)
- Parsed + uses built

Then it would be nice if such a display could be abstract enough so teamwork 
can add its own status icons to documents while collaboration.

The question is where exactly to display such information, how to implement, 

Greetings, David
