I was not asking them to change the default.  I was asking for a way
to change this as a user setting, in a similar manner as one can
configure the text boxes of GTK+ to listen to Emacs-style control
sequences, by placing

gtk-key-theme-name = "Emacs"

into one's ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file.

Yes, and it would really make much more sense to have a way to change
_all_ GTK scrollbars by a user option rather than being able to change
that on a per-application basis.
