Change color of Scratch Area?

I have a very simple question, but there seems to be a very elusive answer. My problem has been trying to snag it.

My question is : How do you change the color of the scratch area (in AI CS5.5)?

Please note - I'm looking to change the color of the "Scratch Area", which is the work area outside of the page. I know how to change the color of the page itself.

Can anyone help?

    You can't.

    Nope. Can't be done.

    Was "you can't" too confusing?

    As a workaround you could cobble it together by modifying the transparency grid colours and using a white rectangle the same size as your artboard. You'd have to turn on the Transparancy grid, of course.
