Thanks.  Found vline a bit slow though - slowed down cursor movement a lot
despite adjusting timer values (which seemed to be ignored - but maybe I
was meant to touch them before initialising the library).  But
col-highlight is neat enough.

Looks like sublime does it quite nicely.  I wonder if someone with more
elisp-fu than myself wants to go ahead and try to reproduce it :)
