I find this behaviour very convenient when scrolling through the buffer,
because the bottom line before scrolling is always
next-screen-context-lines down the top after scrolling.  This makes it
very easy to continue reading, and it is consistent with the behaviour of
vi and less.

Use indicate-empty-lines.
