    The code combines indicators for other cases; can't it do so in these?

What do you mean by "combines indicators"?
Do you mean that it displays multiple fringe bitmaps,
one across the other?  Or some other kind of "combination"?

    BTW, before the release I want to change the name of the fringe
    bitmaps so they indicate the _meaning_ of the bitmaps, rather than
    being named after the default appearance... the current names are very
    confusing and inflexible if you change the appearance using

That change would go counter to other changes that we should make in
the longer term, making a mechanism for users to specify which bitmap
to use for a given purpose.  For that to make sense, the actual names
of the bitmaps should reflect their appearance.
