Agreed, but the nice thing about X's solution is that it's the simplest 
I've seen yet -- just one extra object!

It uses a second field below the top one, with the hilitedLines set to 
all even numbered lines.  You can change the hiliteColor to whatever you 
want, and by being just one extra object it greatly reduces the "scroll 
synch" issue you'll find more noticeable with groups.
