Yes, this is what I meant. And "wrap_layout" would control if scrolling
ends at the edges or wraps.
To prevent update surprises, we must still scroll left and right when
the normal, i.e. vertical wheel is turned. As I see no way to check from
the program if a two wheel mouse is attached, that would require another
user option, because with a two wheel mouse, the expected behaviour
would be what you described above.

Not necessarily. Arguably "wrap layout" could be overloaded to mean:
Stop at the first/last workspace. I heard someone saying, he just helds
down the key for "previous", letting auto-repeat issue an unknown amount
of keys and be sure to arrive on the first workspace.
