Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-overflow] overflow: Consider support for overlay scrollbars

Bikeshedding aside, following the last conf call, we now have 3 
proposals:

1. Have the 3 values (auto/stable/always) attached to a separate 
property that is not a longhand of overflow. e.g: `scrollbar-gutter: 
auto | stable | always`
2. Have the three values attached to an overflow-something property 
that is a longhand of auto. e.g. `overflow-gutter: auto | stable | 
always`
3. Have the two non default values (stable/always) be optional values 
directly on the overflow property. e.g. `overflow: visible | hidden | 
scroll | auto [stable | spaced]?`

In all cases, if we decide to accept 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/419 as well, we can add the
 additional value.

I prefer solution number 1, because it makes sense to me that this 
would cascade separately (which makes it better than 2 and 3), and 
also because this seems more robust with regards to dealing with fall 
back behavior in browsers that don't support this property (which 
makes it better than 3).
