Christian suggested this in passing, as a quick way of seeing
which points are more significant without having to follow the lines
around. Might be a silly idea. Definitely needs to be switch-off-
able. But easy to implement so worth considering.

If this is implemented, I think the colour scheme should be isoluminant
-- we don't want points fading out at one end of the scale.
https://www.kennethmoreland.com/color-maps/ColorMapsExpanded.pdf is
informative: "Isoluminant color maps. The green to red color map is
popular because it uses a pair of opponent colors, but the cyan to mauve
color map is much easier to see by individuals with deuteranope or
protanopic vision." For actual colourmap data,
https://github.com/pyviz/colorcet looks useful: contains a large range
of colourmaps as CSV file, of which six are isoluminant.
