In an earlier post, I said:

Although this is probably due to a bug in Emacs, Kim has said it would be
difficult to fix.  Its an unusual requirement, so it probably not worth
risking breaking something else to fix it now.

So, I would still like to put the left fringe back.  No-one complained about
it being there for the last four years and it makes things more consistent.
However, these issues become larger than they really should.  I think it as an
insignificant change to the general user.
