As long as I didn't reach the start or end of the buffer, I'd like to
see a simple up or down arrow.  At start or end you can display a
horizontal bar.

I'd also be interested in vertical widgets signaling horizontal limits
(line length resp. fill-columns); as long as you use monospaced fonts
such a feature isn't that important (you can display the current column
in the modeline), but when it comes to proportional fonts and enriched
mode a ruler would be handy.
