I got that code to work, although I'm not sure if the "how to use" instructions are quite right.
I'm not very familiar with Emacs Lisp, but I took a stab at it anyway. I wasn't quite able to get it to work. I'm not sure I understand how the buffer positions and markers. Perhaps you have any tips for what's wrong?
(Presumably, you would also want to be able to turn on/off the colors, but I didn't try to figure that out yet).
