Lightroom Classic: Make scroll bars optional/auto-hiding

On a small screen (like a MBP for instance) the scroll bars on the left-and right are using up valuable screen real estate. I know you can auto-hide the entire left/right panels, but I often prefer to leave them open. The 10-ish px wide scroll bars beside each list are a bit redundant as I use my mousewheel exclusively to scroll.

I would love the option to do away with the scroll bars and instead have a google-chrome style auto-hiding scroll bar indicator show up hovering over the right side of the list. When you stop scrolling, it disappears after a second or so so that you can still read the list underneath it.

If people want an indication that there is more to the list than what is currently in view, then perhaps a small "down" arrow can hover in the bottom right of the bounding box, becoming a small "up" arrow when the user scrolls down. If the user scrolls all the way to the bottom/top of the list then the down/up indicator arrow would fade out to suit.
