Please explain how horizontal scroll by wheel is supported.
I tried to use Shift-wheel like in other apps,
but it doesn't scroll horizontally.

Also please explain how moving text using mouse is supported.
I tried to drag the selection with mouse-1,
but it doesn't move text.

Thanks, this is a good starting point for adding contextual menu.
I tried poplife-mode, and it pops up the menu on mouse-3,
but it seems only when there is the selection already,
i.e. it doesn't pop up the menu when nothing is selected.
Is this intended to work this way?
