It's premature for me to say how the bone visualization options work
just from the descriptions. They look like they might be useful, but
maybe needing better integration with existing features. Since it is
hard to take advantage of blender features using object controllers
( actions, linked character proxies, reasonable rest transformations),
I'd say custom object wire colors is a bit misleading for riggers.
However, for me the most interesting item is the pole vector as a float
property, could be quite cool for many setups, esp. if you wanted to
drive the twist from a rotation , and didn't want to go through the hoop
of controlling the pole target.

the pole vector option at least gets my vote! though I'm just an
animator/rigger, not a developer, so I have no say as far as code/design
