In addition, some GUI front-ends to debuggers mark the locations of 
breakpoints and the current execution line with thin horizontal lines 
drawn across the scroll bar (this makes getting to those places by 
dragging the scroll-bar thumb a whole lot easier).  I'm not saying Emacs 
should have the exact same implementation, but perhaps something similar.

It would be nice to have a Lisp API to put images on the fringe, I think.
