Ok, I was not aware that we had a few traditional apps approaching
this from the left, too.  I like the left better, anyway, and would
likely reconfigure Emacs if I had to use Windows.

If we had well-working customization themes, this is one example where
a "Windows standard" theme as opposed to an "Emacs standard" theme
could be used to cater for this.
