Sorry, I should have explained more. Little arrows are really just a 
variant of a regular scrollbar. We didn't used to have them as a 
separate object; we used to have to resize a regular scrollbar until its 
bar disappeared. I suspect this is still how Rev does it internally, 
with the addition of smaller arrow icons.

The suggestion to set the thumbsize to 0 is cool, and is something I 
hadn't thought of. Kind of clever, actually.
