Personally, I don't think I will find your suggestion less distracting,
and I don't think it will be easy to find something which will please

I would guess that people will fall into three categories:

- those who WANT the empty line glyph to be very VISIBLE,
- those who want it to be BARELY visible.
- those who don't want the glyph at all (the default behaviour).

I think it will be impossible to find a glyph which pleases both the
first and second group...

I still think it will be be best option to make the fringe glyphs
