Thanks, LGTM.

However, I think we need to solve those glitches as part of
introducing the feature.  Setting a margin to half the window size
makes centering point difficult, but since some commands do succeed,
I'm guessing that those commands which succeed have a bug, i.e. they
leave point inside the margin.  Is that indeed so?

Also, did you test these changes with scroll-conservatively set to
101?  If not, please do, as that setting activates some code parts
that no other option does.

A few comments below.

Here you call window_scroll_margin 3 times in the same function.  Any
way of doing that only once and reusing the result?

Same here (in another function).

"as a fraction of the current window's height" sounds better, I
think.  (It doesn't matter if the height is in lines or in pixels,
for this purpose.)

We usually call such variables "max-SOMETHING", not
"maximum-SOMETHING".

Also, the actual value is limited by 0.5, but the doc string doesn't
tell that.  It also doesn't say that any non-float value is ignored.

Finally, the new variable needs to be documented in the user manual
and in NEWS.

Thanks.
