[0.5.1 beta3] Show selected item in stores

In stores the status line remains blank when you select an item. It would be good to show each item in the status line as it is selected, so the user doesn't have to keep looking down the list to check that the item they want is actually the ones that's selected.

This becomes important when the list if full of different coloured items, and it's not obvious which is the selected slot.

Is it better to just have all entries white, except for the colored one?  The colored entries are also bad for certain linux builds that have a different color scheme.

That sounds good. Perhaps light grey for the store services, white for the items, then some colour for the selected item?

In any event, printing the selected item on the status line when it is selected would be a good thing.
