> does scrollbar-gutter let you set different values for horizontal and vertical scrollbars?

At the moment, `scrollbar-gutter` only affects the gutters placed at the inline edges of the box.

If you are using `scrollbar-gutter` to prevent changes in your layout caused by the scrollbars at the inline edge, you probably also don't want the scrollbars at the block edge to cause similar changes.

One way to ensure that would be to have a reasonable default, e.g. _"if `scrollbar-gutter` is something other than `auto`, the gutter in the block edge has the `stable`behaviour"_.

Another (complementary?) way would be to offer more fine-grained control over the behaviour of gutters at the block edges.
