[meta] Visual indicators/trackers/numbers for graphics

(Depends on 1 open bug)


A meta bug to link all the visual indicators we may have for different state/performance values, etc.  Dependent bugs would track the actual work, but for example:

1. Indication that we’re scrolling, vs. not vs. in overscroll, with a way to tell if we’re async or have fallen back to sync.  For example, a few green pixels on the status bar when async scrolling replaced by blue pixels when in overscroll replaced by red pixels when in sync scrolling or something like that.

2. Change the background colour of the FPS display depending on the range of the value.  For example, leave it purple when > 55fps, but switch to different colours as we go below certain thresholds (you can figure out what those would be.)  May want to tie this to scrolling only, so that we only see the changes when scrolling - I know that 5 fps isn’t necessarily bad when we’re asking for a 5 fps animation, but it’ll never be good when we’re trying to scroll.  Again, we already have the info, but it’s easier to see when the colour changes, rather than just trying to read those numbers.

CC-ing some QA - this is a good bug to track to see when we get additional visual feedback related to the graphics performance or functionality.
