   imagine when you type a long line in the modeline, the horizontal

   my opinion though.

All of this only seems to apply to the minibuffer's horizontal
scroll-bar.  It would appear that only windows in which truncation is
in effect should get a horizontal scroll-bar.  (I do not see what
sense it makes for windows that use continuation lines.)  For most
people, it seems that horizontal scroll-bars would only be used in
vertically split windows.  (And thus not in the minibuffer.)  For
people who have truncate-lines set to t, it might be possible to
design the variable horizontal-scroll-bar-mode such that it would be
possible to exclude the minibuffer from the list of windows getting a
horizontal scroll-bar, assuming that it looks really that annoying.
