uh? usually tracking the state by the trigger launcher itself isn't
enough... f. e. if the "service" started by the launcher  crashes,
"disconnects"(pppd), or just gets terminated by some script / command,
the state displayed in the launcher would be wrong...
Also, what about the status when you restarted the panel / X ?

I rather went with the approach for periodically checking the status
(every so-many seconds)...

There will be a small "tl service admin" window (callable from within
the trigger launcher properties) where one will be able to generate the
scripts the launcher expects for some common tasks and also to give the
3 commands and let it generate the script for you... but I'm still
working on that...

If you really want "the trigger" to remember the current situation, use
a small empty file somewhere in the filesystem / in your homedir...
generate it in the "tl script" when "starting", check its existance when
"checking", and remove it when "stopping" the "service"...
