I think we need Sugar's appearance to adapt to the hardware it's running
on, and this is a good example.  On the XO, the small screen makes every
millimeter precious, and the grab keys make the scrollbars of secondary
importance.  On large screens with no grab keys, maybe scrollbars should
be wider.  On small capacitive touchscreens, maybe there should be no
scrollbars at all, etc.
