I noticed the idle time display on the info panel above the message window being gone in TabSRMM v3. I thought this was a pretty neat feature, so I'm wondering whether there's any intention in bringing it back. Or maybe there are good reasons it is gone?

Yes, there are good reasons:

1) not supported by all protocols and most messengers do not use it anyway..
2) unreliable, in many cases showing people as idle when they weren't
Every program has at least one bug and can be shortened by at least one instruction -- from which, by induction, one can deduce that every program can be reduced to a single instruction that doesn't work.
