I make use of the solid and empty box: it tells me where my lisp program has
sent the cursor a window thats not selected when I'm using edebug. That might
be quite specialised, but I would ask that this feature is made cutomisable
rather than removed.

On my Emacs `mode-line' face is bright compared with `mode-line-inactive', so
I like this feature (if that means the mode-line of selected window against
unselected windows).

Quite often I do care about the line number. I don't know if this means that
I'm not using Emacs properly.
