Epics and colour coded tasks on the work view

I love the colour coded labels in the planning view for tasks that belong to epics. How can I get the same thing when viewing the tasks in the work view?

You definitely could change the color on the left of the card, just use syntax like 'Epic Link = <issue key for epic>' to apply specific colours to specific Epics.

I'm pretty sure that this is not possible at the moment. The most you can do is make a swimlane for Epics.

It looks like I could change the colour of tasks in the work board view by using a custom query. That would be somewhat helpful. There is a property for querying the colour of the epic that each task belongs to but I don't know what to put on the right side of the = sign in the query.
