We can do that, obviously.  But then, if `fringes-outside-margins' is
non-nil, I would have to trigger autoselection for fringes as well.  So
I'd like to wait until someone really finds the new behavior annoying.

The rationale behind the change is that when someone wants to drag the
modeline or the scrollbar of another window and hovers too long around
the sides of that window she will get an unwanted selection.
