Good suggestion. And trivial to add, of course.

FYI, two details I didn't mention -

 1. Using the Meta modifier with the arrow keys and/or the mouse wheel
boosts the incrementation (step size), so change is faster.

 2. There are four variables representing (by default) the up & down arrow
keys and their Meta versions. You can change these variables to use, say,
keys `C-n' and `C-p' instead of up & down. Also, for a command (like
`doremi-frame-horizontally') to use the left & right arrows instead of up &
down, it can just bind the up & down variables to the left & right arrow
keys before calling `doremi'.

I really like this idea.  However i think the use of the arrowkeys /
mousewheel should be extended to maybe M-p, M-n.  Those keys should be
availible while not in minibuffer-mode and there they mirror the
behaviour of arrowkeys up / down.  I find it annoying to move the hand
off of the homerow.  Guess that's why i do not use things like C-x
<left> / <right> or <S-up>, <S-down>, <S-left>, <S-right> ....
