"Secondary" column coloring

I often deal with dword-aligned file formats so a byte grouping of 4 works for me best, except that it can be hard to spot the byte boundaries in one group when I have to. It'd be great if the bytes within each group could also be alternately colored. At a byte grouping of 4, 8 or 16 bytes, I suppose the current coloring mechanism could even be replaced with this "secondary" coloring mode, since there would be no more than 4 columns which are easy to tell apart, unless a line width wider than 16 is chosen. (But I'm curious if anyone actually does that.) Thank you for this awesome tool and I hope my suggestion could make HxD even better.
