That looked weird (a.k.a. "bug-like") in my experiments, when the face
defines colors.  Moreover, currently we draw nothing at all beyond
EOB, we just clear the rest of the window.  So this would need special
tricky code that will complicate the display engine, something I'd
like to avoid.

Fine with me ('$' might be confusing anyway, because it's the default
for the left truncation glyph on TTY frames).
