I see. I imagine the expected behaviour of such a function would be to
toggle org-inline-src-prettify-results and redisplay?

If there is something that can be done, I'd love to hear about it. I'm
no aware of anything though.

Hmmm, yes. Perhaps something else would make for a better default.
I'm open to suggestions on this, I just didn't personally like any of
the ASCII chars I tried when writing this.

This sounds like something worth being aware of, that nothing can really
(currently) be done about.

I don't know if adding faces is a big deal or not, so I tried to pick
"sensible choices" from the current set. Further input on this would be
appreciated (particularly more people's thoughts).
