Personally, I don't want these. I don't object to syncing them,
Perhaps "scroll-margin" should also apply horizontally (ie, for very
long lines in truncate-lines mode you should get the effect of C-x >

I hate such redundancy. But mode-line can't go, too much history. It
seems to me that the right way to go for header-line is to provide
(optional) gutters on windows as well as (or perhaps instead of) on
frames. Then implement header-line, and maybe mode-line, with that.
Or perhaps it would be useful to allow such special lines anywhere in
the window, not just at top and bottom.
Again, I'm not real interested in this, and won't object to syncing
as-is if people have a use for it. I'm just less than enthusiastic
about the design.
