    This is going to be very ugly when explained in the Emacs manual.  In
    the Emacs manual you still will have to use (default-)indicate-empty-lines
    and (default-)indicate-buffer-boundaries, because only they can be
    given buffer local values (in the non default- version) and only they
    can be set in .emacs (in the default- version).  Then you will have to
    explain that to be able to safely use the default- versions, you have
    to set the menu bar variable fringe-indicators to 'other, to avoid
    having your customizations overridden by inadvertently loading fringe.el.

It is complicated, but I think it is worth while to make it easy for
beginners to control these options *simply* with the menu bar.
However, if you can design a simpler method that implements the same
menu bar options, that would be better.
