It sounds like CurrentTrack is just changing your status message. I
believe the API is exposed to allow Pidgin to advertise this as well,
but doesn't appear to be implemented. A plugin like CurrentTrack would
be the appropriate place to implement this (by setting the
PURPLE_STATUS_TUNE independent status on accounts that support it).
