I figure this is a micro-feature because there is already a scrollbar that does it, and the finding ability also exists. It's just not yet applied for those panes.  I'm begging for this!!

YES!! That's where I put them. I did search, I didn't find  them.

Sure, the idea is that the scroll bar shows key locations in the file. Change the color to indicate a class or function, and put that on the scrollbar too.
