How to change the color of the scroll bar?

I've been following several bugs since Lucid was released:

The short of is, I have difficulty distinguishing the scrollbar grabby bit from the trough it lives in. Several "fixes" have been committed with absolutely no change to the contrast in this area (despite bold claims by their authors :@).

How can I increase the contrast of brightness or color between the scrollbar trough and bar, without adding theme specific hacks, or constrain those changes to only the themes I have difficulty with?

You could install "gnome colour chooser" from the 'software centre' and this would allow you to tweak any colour you like. A detailed answer, explaining how to tweak scrollbar colors using "gnome colour chooser" is available here.
