Colored Finder Sidebar Folders

Hey Mac Rumors!

One thing that really bothers me about the the OS is the fact that we are able to color code the directory folders (which is a great function by the way), though when the folder is dragged onto the sidebar in the finder, there is no color overlay.

My question to you all today is whether there is an app or function/setting or hack that does just this? I have looked on google for a bit to no avail.

Thank you for any degree of help offered.

I haven't but after installing it, does a nice job. However, what I was asking how could I get the folders to be highlighted (labelled) in the sidebar like they are highlighted (labelled) in my directory.
