Description Andy Estes 2010-03-02 00:39:39 PST
WebKit needs the ability to dispatch mouse wheel events from JavaScript in order to test WebKit scrolling behavior programatically.  For instance, https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29601 cannot be properly tested without such a capability.

Proposed patch

Suggestions from IRC: 
- instead of the long comments explaining the difference between m_wheelDeltaX/Y and m_deltaX/Y, I would suggest giving them names that make the difference more clear
- m_wheelDeltaX/Y are exposed by that name in the API, perhaps the others could be m_rawDeltaX/Y or m_pixelDeltaX/Y

r=me with that change.

Landed in r55436 since the commit queue seems uninterested in committing changes.
