If you're talking about the dancing arrows, I might agree, although
I'd point out that we also miss the corresponding implementation.
As for the fringes, I would rather not advertise the ability to
remove them (to new users).  I didn't like them at first, but I now
think they're really cool (the only thing missing is the "cursor
inside the right fringe" feature which would allow us to display 80
char lines with no wrapping).
I think new users could be tempted to turn them off and never discover
how cool they are (and/or whine about how lame the gdb-arrow looks).
