Almost all of nano's interface elements can be colored, but not the indicator, the "scrollbar".  (I avoided adding such a configurable color because in my first quick tests the coloring misbehaved.  But it turns out that I tested wrongly, and that any miscoloring occurs only with older libvtes.)

For normal text files (that don't overflow the right edge) having a plain, unconfigurable scrollbar is quite acceptable.  But for files with more than an occassional overlong line, the gluing together of the highlighted ">" with the indicator is ugly.  This would not be a problem if the indicator could be given some color.
