Yes, when I was facing the server issue - I struggled as well with 
having no indication in the UI whether I was connected now or not. This 
should definitely be enhanced in 0.86 - filed as #653.

I wonder if we could provide something like a device for 0.84 showing 
the connectivity. This could be an extension someone can download. I 
know it would not be the right place to put it there - just that 
extensions can be made available after the freeze - as additional 
download; and prove the extension concept :)

Just a thought,
