If a user is in private browsing mode, the only visible weave UI is the status bar UI that simply shows username. 

We need something better to show users that weave, even if connected, will not sync anything while in private browsing mode.

Good point, Ragavan.  At the very least, when the user enters private browsing currently, they get a notification that says your current session will be saved.  If the user has weave installed, there should be a clear and obvious note on this notification that weave won't work.  Also, the weave login on the bottom right on the status bar (the only visible weave UI currently afaik) should change say that weave is disabled because of private browsing.

better UI for private browsing mode

Statusbar will now read: Disabled (Private Browsing)
Prefpane signup elements will all disable, as will connect/disconnect/sync now
buttons/menuitems throughout the UI.
