How about something like the following patch?  This builds the string
dynamically by filling decode_mode_spec_buf to the desired length,
dispensing with an additional lots_of_<foo> string.  AFAICT this gives
good results (though I admittedly haven't been able to find a case where
lots_of_filler (replacing lots_of_dashes) is used; what is such a
case?).

I also exposed the string character variable mode_line_filler to Lisp,
so it could be customizable, but I haven't been able to figure out how
to update the mode line with a new character.  Also, I don't know the
right way to set the default value: I assume it shouldn't be done in
decode_mode_spec() as below but at the top level together with the
DEFVAR, but then how can it be associated with the window whose mode
line is being constructed?
