YEah, I agree -- scrollbar dragging is a rough control at best, so it's
really only important that it be close enough to make people happy.

I think that the beginning- and end- of buffer are special cases however, so
it's reasonable to pay a bit of extra attention to them, and that `squishy
thumb + sticky-point at the last-line-of-buffer-last-line-screen' method
would very naturally meet all the various goals though.
