There's another alternative to having the vertical scroll bar on
a line of its own:

What about splitting the existing modeline into two parts:  
        a scroll-bar part with a width equal to, say, 10 characters,
        a text part corresponding to the current mode line.

Something like this:

  | |
  | |
    |<|   ||    |>|-=?**  c.c    etc.  ----------

when the vertical scroll bar is at the left, and

                                              | |
                                              | |
                                              | |
  -=?**  c.c    etc.  ----------|<|   ||    |>|

when the vertical scroll bar is on the right.
