My 1st patch did have one advantage over the 2nd, though, in that not
all gtk windows with a scrollbar react to PgUp/Down key events (for
instance, the main window of testgtk), and you could scroll vertical
as well as horizontal scrollbars.

However, after a few of days of mouse-wheeling, there is little
question in my mind that the "scroll what the mouse is over" is the
best policy.
