Well, I am working on the inputs provided by the list members.
- I am now getting the scroll bar above the modeline and for ever new
frame (NOT for the MINI-BUFFER)
I did a quick hack in w32term.c along the same lines of
w32_set_vertical_scroll_bar ()
and did other changes for horizontal scroll. I am facing problems in
"redeem"... I need to understand the way windows in GNU Emacs works
before I can come up with a robust solution.
 With RMS's concern of having a MS-WIN specific feature, I fully agree. I
 do not know 'X' windows stuff. I will do this for MS-windows and once it
 is complete, I will send the modified files for review/porting.
