[Pure messenger] Foreground service option and notification icon


No need to request me to hide the notification icon if you are using Android >= 2.0, it is impossible.

Android force to use a notification to warn the user that a service is running in foreground.

Too much developpers was forcing foreground with Android 1.5/1.6… it was a mess for memory management:/
So Google reacted: they disable they old API, an create a new one … with forced notification.
