I just started using org-clock, and that seems like a major issue (from an emacs 
user perspective, who is used to be able to modify everything that gets 
displayed, especially such an important part). The code is a bit messy and I 
don't understand everything, so I'm not able to write a patch for this, but can 
someone look into that? Ideally, org-clock-modeline-total would be obsoleted and 
replaced by a org-clock-modeline-format that'd get passed to format-spec.
