Well, _actually_, if you're using GTK widgets, the the fringe-icon info is
slightly more accurate than the scrollbar when you're near the end of the
buffer (apparently due to GTK's broken scroll-bar model): even though the EOB
is on the screen, the scroll-bar makes it look like it's not.  So in that
case, even a scroll-bar fan probably would want to use both.

"Though they may have different meanings, the cries of 'Yeeeee-haw!' and
 'Allahu akbar!' are, in spirit, not actually all that different."
