Fringes, scroll bars are taken into account by split-window-right, but
not by window-width.

OK, I found about `window-total-width'.  I should have done
M-x apropos ^window-.*-width$
first, sorry.

The question that remains is whether `split-window-right' should set
`window-size' or `window-total-size' or something else yet.  (My opinion
is `window-size', but I may be wrong.)  Eventually, it seems to rely on
`split-window', which is too scary for me to look into now (235 lines,
excluding the docstring;-)).
