Sorry, I should've been more clear.  This is the same as the patch but
without the whitespace changes.  Please try applying the patch
instead.  Thanks.

I'm personally prone to agree with you, but the reasoning in the previous
discussion in this thread seems to be that we do want it.  Or at least
something similar.

Personally, I think the scrolling itself is enough feedback.  It
either scrolls or it doesn't.  That's what happens in many other
programs, for example in Firefox.  And scroll-bar-mode is enabled by
default.

But I think my opinion on this carries less weight than Stefan
Monnier's.  :-)

Thanks,
