In standard widgets, it just works.  Any special widgets will need
minor attention, but it's pretty easy, I think.

For PC Unix users (those that use XFree86 or similar) it's pretty easy
to hack with 8.0, 8.1: you just need to have a suitable bind tag and
suitable events to invoke, then just bind <Button-4> and <Button-5>
events appropriately.  

I did have a quick look at one or two of the Source Navigator windows,
but I couldn't see what bind tag to use.  That's probably just my
ignorance of [incr Tcl] and things.
