Only if you don't need to set a font anyway to be able to see your

That space is reserved for more penguins! Think SMP, or perhaps a P4 with
hyperthreading! But seriously, once you've configured your machine
correctly the penguin doesn't stay around for long, so the space is not
available for a status line.
