GTK+ apps can already do both - I described how to implement the
second in some detail in a recent mail.

What I'm opposed to is having dragging the scrollbar to the bottom
scroll to the last page of the document, then dragging it _past_
the bottom overscroll the buffer. I don't think dragging past
the end is a meaningful feature to have for this widget.
