I'm proposing to change a default setting, not to interfere with user
preferences.  The usual default for frames is a fringe on each side.  This
allows the indication of line truncation and continuation lines.

Previously the speedbar did have a left fringe.  I don't know why it was
removed because there's no ChangeLog entry.  Perhaps you can say what
the advantage is (apart from saving one character width which would be
an argument against the fringe, in general, not just for the speedbar.

Then you won't see much benefit, but you won't lose much either.
