Indicator to show Security Slider level at a glance (maybe on Tor Button icon?)

As changes to the security slider are persistent across re-launches of TorBrowser could we get an indicator that displays what the current security slider level is?
Its tedious to have navigate to the security slider settings every time to check especially if you change this setting a lot for different sites.

I mocked up some examples where the the TorButton color changes from green to yellow to red? Perhaps red, yellow green is too dramatic?

Maybe something more sublte might be to vary the saturation of the green color on the Tor button? Brighter green = higher security.
Or maybe a small letter beside the TorButton? Or a combination of both? or something else entirely?

It would be helpful to see at a glance what level the Security Slider is set to.
