Yes, this will be in the next nightly[1]. In your
`~/.textadept/properties.lua` you can put:

     buffer.edge_mode = buffer.EDGE_MULTILINE
     buffer:multi_edge_add_line(column1, color1)
     buffer:multi_edge_add_line(column2, color2)

Or wrap the lines above in a function connected to `events.VIEW_NEW` in
your `~/.textadept/init.lua`.
