Showing info while editing

A small request: there's the scene and object info panels that show the polyount.

When working on reducing polygons, however, I have to check often which means:
  • make edit
  • open info panel (CMD + I)
  • check polycount
  • close info panel
  • repeat
My request would be to be able to have the info panel open while making changes and the info panel automatically updating so I can live-check the info changes.
