Fine with me too, but let's first see if there is going to be such a patch for 
this particular issue... 

I also just noticed that pressing the Meta (Command or Control) key while an 
inertial scroll is coasting still lets zooming kick in in the xcb plugin, 
meaning that the same application doesn't work consistently across platform 
plugins. Isn't that a bug, and if so, what is the intended behaviour?
