What a beautiful coincidence :-)
But the best thing is that there is a patch already done for having the
"feature" implemented at Xorg.

Wheel sroll speed is slow (at least with my basic 3 button mouse I also
barely get 3 lines up/down which can be quite annoying depending on the
document lentgh). But if there is a patch to speed it up, I see no
compeling reason for not having the opposite and make the wheel scrolls

I don't share that POV.
IMO, it will be desiderable to be possible to tweak both options: one
(system wide) that affects all applications managed via Xorg's mouse
driver and also having the possibility to control wheel speed for every
application. This will result in a fine grained configuration that will
suit every user need.
