The variable org-clock-mode-line-total controls whether to show the clocked time of only the current clock or of all accumulated clocks of the current task. However, I'd actually like to show both.

The package org-pomodoro displays a pomodoro counter in the modeline in addition to the normal org-clock display. However, I don't want the countdown of org-pomodoro and want to simply display the time elapsed on the current clock so far, starting from 0:00.

How can I do it?
