Re: Fringe frame parameters, default values

    So the configured values (stored in param_alist) and the actual values
    (returned by frame-parameters) will differ - and there will be no way
    for the user to see the configured values.

That discrepancy would indeed be a bad thing.  What this says
is that some more fundamental cleanup is needed.

    Otherwise, we will lose the
    automatic recalculation of the fringe widths in case the default font
    is changed.

I think the right solution is that the widths should be specified as
ratios to the "column width", not as numbers of pixels.  This would
fit all the constraints in a clean way.  It would also make for
more consistency, since most of the frame parameters for sizes
are specified in columns or lines, not in pixels.
