It's hard to do this, because the mouse wheel doesn't actually send a
"scroll yourself N lines" signal. Generally, it's just interpreted as clicks
of mouse buttons 4 and 5 (for forward and backwards), and it's up to the app
(or GUI toolkit or widget) to decide what to do about that.

That is, "interpret changes on the scroll wheel as clicks of button 4 and
5".
