This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (i386-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2004-08-03 on raven, modified by Debian

'--with-x-toolkit=athena' 'CFLAGS=-DDEBIAN -g -O2' 'build_alias=i386-linux'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I would like to propose that the Emacs support Wheel mouses by default.
It's unintuitive to open X-editor, which does not enable Mouse wheel
without an explicit command.

The mwheel.el load could be arranged dynamically so that:

    1) if mouse-wheel even is received
    2) and mwheel is not loaded
       => load mwheel and enable mouse wheel

So, those users that have wheel mouse would take advantage of
it. Those who do not have, then mwheel is not loaded, because
mouse-wheel event is never sent.
