I know it is too late - the feature has already been implemented,
but how is this better than the scrollbar?
This whole thing - arrows, EOB/BOB angles - just duplicates the exact
same information in the scrollbar (without the benefit of clickability).

Also, I agree with those who say that all these items should be on the
same side of the screen, preferably on the left.
