That would be great, though surely requiring more effort.

That is OK, thanks. Still, I think that these delays/timeouts setting is
quite sensitive to users' personal preferences, manual abilities. And
for a given user, they should be the same for all sliders/scrollbars
used. So rather than allowing to set them for individual objects (which
can also be available, why not), I think it would be best to be able to
set the default for the whole application (which would even allow the
application author adding a runtime option to change it, for other 
users using the app).

regards, Michal.
