Feature Request: show time as pie chart in the menu bar icon

I a feature request for Time Out. In the Time Out status in the menu bar I love the colored icons but I don't like the time in text format. I'd love to see the icon have a timer overlay that advances and forms a pie chart of sorts to show how much time has elapsed or is remaining with a glance. It doesn't have to be perfect, it's just a visual clue.

I've attached an idea of what I mean where the Micro Break (green) is about 75% of the way to the next break. The Normal Break (red) is about 30% of the way to due.

I don't know how easy it'd be, but I think it'd be nice to have something like this (or whatever great solution you come up with). Thanks!

Yes, that is something I'm considering for a future version. I had to limit the number of things to include in 2.0, or I'd never get it out the door!

David, I completely understand the time constraints issue. I'm glad you've already thought of this! Please add my voice as a voice of support for it when you do have time to work on it.

Thanks!
