This is outside of the domain of window managers.  The Xt scrollbars
(see the program xterm, for instance) behave in a way similar to what
you want.  The Xt scrollbars are the ugliest I've seen, but also the
ones with the best functionality.

For the Xt scrollbars, left-clicking scrolls down and right-clicking
scrolls up.  It matters where in the scrollbar you click: clicking
near the top scrolls a little bit, clicking in the middle scrolls by
half a screenful, and clicking near the bottom scrolls by a screenful.

I wonder if Gnome, being themeable and all that, can be made to behave
in similar ways, or perhaps as you describe.
