This has already been discussed almost two years ago: 

I just realized that since beta 9.3 it is possible to use coloured 
images for the gutter, so I decided to give it a try (see attached 

I like this look, especially as warning marks stand out much better now 
against the SCM status marks.

If you’re interested, here’s the fork: 

In the discussion back then Allan mentioned that he considered adding a 
dedicated “diff” api:

Is this something that will be implemented in the foreseeable future? Or 
should I try to polish my current solution to make it ready for merging? 
(Open questions are at least: How to adapt for different gutter 
background colours? What about colour-blind people [1]?)
