The window on the left.

Have you tried this?  Using the default toolkit there is no vertical line when
the scroll bar is present.  This is true both with the fringe (where there are
narrow margins) and without it.

The same logic can be applied to mouse-split-window-vertically (currently on
[vertical-line C-mouse-2]).  Which window gets split?  You only have to try
it once to find out, it's not rocket science.

Anyway it's a bit tricky selecting the vertical line, but this is true for
resizing.  I think it would be sensible to add these bindings and make the
vertical line a few pixels wider.
