The Productivity Power Tools extension
(http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/d0d33361-18e2-46c0-8ff2-4adea1e34fef/)
may be the better place for this sort of feature (it already includes
line highlighting), though I don't know whether it supports the shell
versions (IIRC, it's >=Professional only). I'd be quite happy to have
indent guides in most languages.
