For now I went for the cheapest options.
I implemented a "visualized special char" color/attribute settng

It works highlighter independent, and acts on all space/tabs (if they 
are visualized). The default is not to modify them.

Now you can set the foreground color of all of them to a new value 
(sorry no alpha yet). So you got a black background, you set a dark grey.

Only issue: if you have different background colors for comment, string, 
normal-text => then you still have only one "space" foreground color for 
all of them. You can override the background too => but that probably 
would not look that nice.

You can set frames, but they will act as "one per group of whitespace".
so you can not frame each tab separately.
