We already made the default scroll bar placement to the left because

I think the default should be the same as is done for the normal
wrap-icon in the fringe: put it on both sides.  E.g. put an icon on the
left at the beginning of a (long) line, and an icon on the right at the
end of a (long) line.

You mean at the left of the continuation of a long line?

If this is implemented as fringes, I guess there is still nothing that prevents the use of the current 'display property too?
