For those interested, attached is a new version of the pop-up tool-bar
implementation that I sent previously. It fixes a minor bug (scroll-down
when bobp).

;; Filename: tool-bar+.el
;; Description: Extensions to standard library tool-bar.el
;; Author: Drew Adams
;; Maintainer: Drew Adams
;; Copyright (C) 2004, Drew Adams, all rights reserved.
;; Created: Tue Oct 05 17:02:16 2004
;; Version: 21.0
;; Last-Updated: Sun Oct 10 21:41:05 2004
;;           By: dradams
;;     Update #: 163
;; Keywords: tool-bar, convenience, mouse, button, frame
;; Compatibility: GNU Emacs 21.x
;;; Commentary: Extensions to standard library tool-bar.el
;;  New commands defined here:
;;    `show-tool-bar-for-one-command', `tool-bar-here-mode',
;;    `tool-bar-pop-up-mode'.
;;  New key bound here: [menu-bar pop-up-tool-bar]
;;  Usage:
;;    Load this library: (require 'tool-bar+).
;;    Turn on tool-bar pop-up mode: M-x tool-bar-pop-up-mode.
;;    Click "Buttons" in the menu-bar to access the tool-bar when you
;;    need it. This displays the tool-bar buttons just long enough for
;;    one command: after you click a tool-bar button, the tool-bar
;;    disappears again.
;;    The advantage of `tool-bar-pop-up-mode' is that you do not lose
;;    frame real estate to the tool-bar -- you have it when you need
;;    it, at the cost of an extra click ("Buttons").
;;    In addition to defining minor mode `tool-bar-pop-up-mode', this
;;    library defines minor mode `tool-bar-here-mode', which is the
;;    same as the global `tool-bar-mode' except that it affects only
;;    the current frame.
;;    The advantage of `tool-bar-here-mode' is (again) that it saves
;;    real estate on frames other than the ones with the tool-bar.
;;  Put this in your initialization file (`~/.emacs'):
;;  (require 'tool-bar+) ; load this library
