High contract patterned bar which remains high contrast when reduced to 
thumbnail would be better than colored, since lots of people don't have 
full-range color vision, and there are lots of very different types of color 
vision idiosyncracies (high-contrast-only visions, red-green color 
blindness, blue-yellow color blindness, grayscale only vision, color fading 
(some ability in the different bands but inability to distinguish some 
colors from others, and nothing really being -vibrant- colors...)  vision

I'm really liking that idea.  And it needn't take up that much space, if
run vertically down one side.

Coloured bar with a marker at the relevant point.
