I have no idea what you guys are talking about, but as someone who's
spent a fair amount of time on the Emacs support for Motif and Xaw3d
scrollbars, I think that any dragging behavior that

- doesn't flicker majorly
- can always make (point-max) visible
- doesn't impose an unnatural thumb size and position
  (i.e. unlike the current Motif situation)
- is not much slower than the current code

is already pretty difficult to obtain, so talking about anything finer
than that seems totally pointless.
