Scrollvetica 1.0

What is it?

If you spend part of your time living in the future, with default Magic
Mouse and Magic Trackpad settings, you may find it difficult to switch
between the future and the present and maintain any sort of input device

Scrollvetica is a simple hack which inverts all scrolling events on Snow
Leopard such that the effective scroll direction is in the direction of
finger movement.


Existing accessibility based solutions didn't work in the set of
applications I use daily.


+ Inverts all scroll events in both the horizontal and vertical directions.

Known Issues

Since this hack literally inverts all scroll events, scroll events which are
used for things other than scrolling will now likely be backwards.

Known examples of things which work incorrectly now:

	The volume slider in iTunes
	The volume slider in the volume menu extra
	Using scroll events to move the selection in the application switcher
I have no plans to "fix" this class of "bug".
