More Compact "File Modified" Indicator


I just noticed for the first time (though I think it goes back a long way) that when enabled in the Editor Tabs section of the Editor preferences, the file-modified marker in the editor tab (the asterisk) makes all the tabs wider by the amount of space required to draw the asterisk (regardless of whether or not it's shown at the moment for any given tab).

I was wondering if people thought an alternate modified indication, one that didn't occupy extra space, might be nice to have? E.g., writing the file name with an underscore or using a color variation for the name.
