Is there some way to conjoin the lines better then. The gap and color
difference is fairly distracting.

I'd prefer not to have a key for each part of the line, really. It's
just the gap and color difference that bug me. It stands out too much
from the rest of the application, which is not what we want really. We
want something to show that the current time is approximately "here",
rather than trying to get the user to use the calendar as a clock app.
