What I'd like to do is remove a highlight from a buffer or change its
appearance when said buffer is not current, and restore it when it
becomes current again. Similar to what happens to the cursor in a window
that is not selected.

Since it's the visual effect I'm interested in, it's really only
relevant when the buffer is being displayed in a window, which is why I
asked the question this way.

I would be equally happy with a hook that is called when a buffer switch
takes place, but from what Google tells me, such a hook does not exist.
