BBM Status update or possible app?

I use ping.fm to update my status across linkedin, facebook, twitter, etc. But there is no option for BBM.

FYI: ping.fm allows you update all your networks status via email, sms, gtalk, aim, skype, yahoo im, iphone, etc and there is even a blackberry app called BlackPing (http://schwenkconsulting.com/?q=node/22) that allows the updating as well.

I wanted to use a service like ping.fm that would broadcast my BBM status. Does anyone know of one?

And in the case that there isnt an web service for that, could anyone help me clarify:
The technical things necessary to update BBM "status"?
Can you do it from a web service?
Can you do remotely anyway?


Is there a way to create an app that would override the BBM status ? (which would be sent through the ping.fm network)
