Generalization of Advanced Scroll-bars with Document Preview

Take simple dektop scroll-bar class, and extend it to include main window preview.
  [vote for,

To those who use vi editor, but get to know about the Sublime Text editor, it may occur that it is really convenient to have a wide scroll-bar with the whole code written in very tiny font in it.

It can be useful not for a single editor, but for any GUI application that has a document that needs scrolling.

Hence, the idea is to generalize it at the desktop environment level.

Imagine: your favorite terminal emulator with an option of such scroll-bar.

       Please don't fix it. I like the word "dektop". Sounds so William Gibson.
