unobstrusive way to show indentation

How difficult would it be to implement some way to show indentation levels in an unobstrusive way?  Sublime text and other modern editors do this by drawing a thin vertical line down from (back-to-indentation).  I find it really helpful when reading code.  This stackoverflow question clarifies what I'm after, although I didn't ask it.  I find this really helpful when reading a piece of code with many block levels, especially since the standard indentation level for ruby is 2 spaces.

I guess it can be faked by changing the face of that column, but that would be more obstrusive than a thin line.  Maybe there is another solution I haven't thought of?
