I don't use scroll bars and I wonder how you know there are only a few of us.
In any case surely the solution must be to make the vertical line visible
alongside the scroll bar.  Thats what XEmacs does.  It would also make other
commands like mouse-split-window-vertically available to the scroll bar user.

I guess you don't like the text terminal patch that I suggested (using the SPC
character instead of `|') but I would rather you said this, so I have a record
of what you think.
