John,
Not in PG, but:
I often use PLOT to draw some colored dots, squares, or whatnot to indicate
such a thing. I have also used DRAWPICTURE with two different PICT's to
indicate the same, just drawing over each other. If you don't mind little
blocks of color, then PLOT works fine. Need to put something in your
refresh routines though, if they get clobbered by another window at times.

Don't know if any of that helps.
