Yes, it's what I'm saying, I'm not too happy with the current design and
I think that patch improves things. Clearly, I took the easy patch and
implemented the functionality twice (not the same exact implementation,
sure, but still, done twice...)

Yeap, I don't think we should not bother too much with people who run
other WM because people who choose to run another WM do that because
they like the functionalities of that particular WM, then won't care if
the scroll wheel is missing.

I hope I made myself clearer :)
