As a recovering BBEdit user, this is a feature I miss. If I  
understand you correctly, it's what BBEdit calls it the Page Guide  
(or "Philip Bar" in older versions). A few Windows editors that I use  
at work have this feature too.

I think it's very convenient, since there are times when wrapping is  
impractical, but you'd still like a subtle indication that you're  
wandering off too far. It works especially well with a keystroke  
assigned to this script: <http://daringfireball.net/2004/10/
