Can you take a look minor-mode that I want to invoke by hook?  I still
think this is potentially useful to mouse-loving cloud using
<wheel-left> and <wheel-right>.

;;; Commentary:

;; To interactively toggle the mode:
;;   M-x touchpad-mode
;; To make the mode permanent, add the following lines to your init
;; file.
;;   (require 'touchpad)
;;   (touchpad-mode 1)
;; This package offers a global minor mode which makes swiping
;; touchpad scroll smoothly.  This package disables
;; `auto-hscroll-mode' during scroll because of following two aspects.

;; (1) It should be off during vertical scroll.  Let’s consider a
;;     buffer is with short and long alternative lines and when point
;;     is at the end of long line, at the top of current window.
;;     After `scroll-up 1', point jumps to the end of the next short
;;     line and you see scope shifts suddenly leftward.  This behavior
;;     is sometimes unexpected one.

;; (2) It should be off during horizontal scroll.  During horizontal
;;     scroll, you may scroll a little in vertical direction without
;;     intention.  The horizontal scroll should be tolerance against
;;     such perturbation.  The source of concern is same as (1).

;; After scroll, you want to set `auto-hscroll-mode' back again
;; otherwise too inconvenient for further edition.  Approach of this
;; package is to turn on another minor-mode `touchpad--2d-mode' with
;; `auto-hscroll-mode' nil at the beginning of `mwheel-scroll'.  The
;; minor mode is turned off upon any key inputs that move point.

;;; Change Log:

;; 20170409.1204
;;  - (setq scroll-conservatively 100) on minor mode may work as backup

;;; Todo:
;;  - Release as a package
