It was ASCII, I just meant it was arcane at best and came in at 18kb for 
this single blue square.

And related to this thread, beta 9.3 (nightly build) has support for 
both a “did open” command callback and setting multi-color images in 
the gutter (I decided on making it so that monochrome images must have a 
“Template” suffix to follow the system convention).

So now someone just needs to a) create a script to find everywhere a 
color is specified in a CSS file and b) generate an image from a CSS 
color specification.

I personally do not plan to do any of this, but will gladly assist 
anyone who wants to undertake this task and require help.
