I have found buffer.caret_line_visible to be useful in eyeballing the
active view, but if the caret is scrolled out of position due to view
splitting then this becomes problematic.

You should be able to change the margin color on the fly using the
buffer.style_fore and buffer.style_back tables for l.style_line_number
(33), but it probably resets when re-styling the view so this may not be
the most practical route.
