Is anyone else having problems with their messages not getting through 
to this list?  Anyway, here is my reply again:

It looks to me like the "status" and "action" columns are two separate 
columns, with the action column being the right-most column and the 
status column sitting just to the left of it.  Looking at lines 148-153 
of wp-admin/plugins.php it doesn't look like there are any hooks to add 
anything to that cell.  It will only be one of those two things.
