Gwibber doesn't warn you when all accounts are disabled

Bug Description

What happens:
Gwibber doesn't alert the user of having no enabled services to post to. If you've disabled your services to post to via clicking them in the "Send with:" section and send a message update, it doesn't warn you that its not going to any of your services. The message is also lost completely, but thats already been reported.

What I expect:
Trying to post an update in Gwibber when all available services have been disabled should (as one option) disable the "Send" button and display a small notice (not a pop-up, something less intrusive) that the user should first select a service to post to and then click send.

Example Screenshot:

Description: Ubuntu lucid (development branch)
Release: 10.04

  Version table:
 *** 0

        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I've only just realised that I had (somehow!) unselected my only account (Twitter) and then couldn't send messages. It seems to me that if you only have one account, either the ability to unselect that account (in the 'Send with:' section) should be disabled, or the status box should be disabled if you have disabled all your accounts.
