Customizing the fringe bitmaps

I would like to volounteer to write the code to make the fringe
bitmaps customizable.

However, I don't know what the interface to this feature should be.

One option is to load the bitmap from a (pbm) file.

Another option would be to let the user draw the bitmap like this:

(set-fringe-bitmap 'overlay-arrow 
                   '("*        "
                     "***      "
                     "*****    "
                     "*******  "
                     "*******  "
                     "*****    "
                     "***      "
                     "*        "))

Personally, I like the second option as it is fully self-contained.

The major problem with this approach is that it isn't obvious (to me)
how to do this through Customize.
