I am unclear on if this is actually a good use of resources relative to the benefit. It might be much simpler from a software perspective to widen the scroll bars on the windows. Furthermore, we must entirely hijack the grab key (super key) for scrolling, and cannot map it to other window manager actions. --Erik Garrison 17:43, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
