Also, Eclipse allows fringe elements which do not scroll with the
window contents.  This turns out to be pretty handy.

For instance you could show the user the visible area of the current
buffer (relative to the size of the whole buffer) as a different
background color.  In Eclipse you can see little blocks in the
right-hand fringe which represent errors, problems, etc, and you can
click them to jump to the corresponding point.

I don't think there is a way to do this in Emacs yet, either.
