I have always found GUI mouse wheel events (and others) to be lacking
in the "user tuned control" category. NOTE: Instead of forcing your
lib users to configure specifics or re-bind events like(course,
medium, fine) simply pre-bind the following events and empower the end

  MouseWheel -> cb(MEDIUM)
  MouseWheel+ControlKey -> cb(FINE)
  MouseWheel+ShiftKey -> cb(COURSE)

What a novel FREAKING idea!
