    Setting `vertical-scroll-bar' does not seem to have any effect
    whatsoever, but its docstring starts with a `*', and
    clearly suggests that all the user has to do to change the type of the
    current buffer's scroll bar is to set this variable.

Are you saying the variable seems to have no effect in any way?
There is code that examines it, in set_window_buffer.

I think the way it works is that when you display
the buffer in a window, the buffer's local value of
vertical-scroll-bar sets what happens in that window.
I tried it, and it worked for me.

So I will change the doc string as follows:

                     doc: /* *Position of this buffer's vertical scroll bar.
The value takes effect whenever you display this buffer in a window.
A value of `left' or `right' means put the vertical scroll bar at that side
of the window; a value of nil means don't show any vertical scroll bars.
A value of t (the default) means do whatever the window's frame specifies.  */);

Is any further change needed?
