SynMiniMap or Sublime Text minimap ripoff

Some time ago, I've heard about Sublime Text, outstanding tool!

One of the things I like most about it, is the minimap, which is a scaled down version of the file which will help you have a bird's eye view of the file, this means that you can see somewhere between 100 and 200 lines in the minimap, while the text editor can only display about half of what the minimap can at best.

I've started thinking, wouldn't it be cool if there was something like that for SynEdit? googled-googled-googled, nada... okay, that kinda' sux... synedit is around for many years... oh well, started coding and here's the result(this is a screenshot of the included demo)

minimap demo
You can find the code at http://code.google.com/p/delphigeist-delphi-stuff It also includes a simple tabbed demo. Suggestions and bug fixes are welcomed!
The code is under apache license 2.0, whatever that means... if anyone can suggest the most "freely" license possible, I'm willing to change it.
