The one I see a lot is to have a small widget (a kind of button, just
very narrow, with a special stipple which looks like a rugged surface)
which, if clicked on, turns the menu bar/tool bar back on.

I think the menu-bar item should say "On the Right", not just
"Right".  Similarly for "Left".

I suggest "Select scroll bar mode" as the help text.  (Note that we
don't capitalize words in the help text, only in the menu items.  Help
text should look like normal text.)
