SugarCRM v7 how can I color code a Contact relate field or its label based on a contact field?

Question asked by Francesca Shiekh on Dec 19, 2014
In the Contacts module we identify VIP Contacts via a VIP status dropdown
I would like to color code every Contact relate field in the application, or add the VIP status to the Contact Relate field (better). 

Any thoughts on how this could be achieved?

I suppose I could edit the field definition for fullname and then customize the formatName to include the vip status but it seems extreme....

In 6.5.18 I looked up the contact in view.detail.php and  just set a VIP smarty var which I inserted in the field in detailviewdefs.php (had to do this per module, but wasn't hard to do).
