Add rainbow to contact map

The contact map would be easier to read if the two axes had narrow rainbow gradients along them to match the rainbow view of the protein, as in this image: http://openseq.org/img/contact_map_small.gif
Then we could see if the red end contacts the blue end, etc. Right now there is no clue which part of the map corresponds to which part of the protein unless you know to hover over the backbone - and doing that only highlights one segment, not pairs.
This would be even better if foldit had a better color gradient (with, say, yellow and orange instead of being half green). I assume colorblind mode has a different gradient for rainbow view that could also be used on the contact map.
