Have you done an ergonomics study? Are you actually competent in
ergonomics? Did your study take scrollwheels into account?
Bill Gates puts scrollbars on the right so that
the window will seem more like the page of a written book. This makes
no sense, but it's done that way so that windows users won't be afraid.
Nice history revisionism there.
That's fine. Why can't I persuade xemacs to put the vertical
on the left side, where I want it? I can't find any option, or
documentation for one, anywhere on the xemacs web site.

There doesn't seem to be an easy way to reach it. You can put the
command in your .xemacs/init.el and be happy though.
