Bug#376997: gnome-terminal: request for smooth scroll on mousewheel action

Package: gnome-terminal
Version: 2.14.2-1
Severity: wishlist

on each mousewheel action, gnome-terminal scrolls 12 full lines of text.  
this is hard to follow, especially if a list of similar items occupies 
the terminal output.  it would be useful if the mouse scroll could be 
settable (i would probably set it to 3 lines) or if there were a gentle, 
but quick animation (using few cpu cycles) to indicate to the user the 
scroll action.

thank you for your consideration.
