The interface for indicate-buffer-boundaries is really kludgy.
I cleaned up the doc for it, but I would really rather make
A good way to make it simpler is to use an alist. Pick four suitable
symbols, one for each of these icons. I suggest `top', `bottom', `up'
and `down'. t can serve as a default for all four. In the alist,
associate these symbols with either `left', `right' or `nil'.
Instead of current (t . right), we would use ((top . left) (t . right))
or ((top . left) (bottom . right) (up . right) (down . right))
Instead of current (left . nil), we would use ((top . left) (bottom . left)).
Isn't that clearer? It is much less ad-hoc.
