      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      Java should be able to distinguish between the different scroll wheels on a mouse with 2 scroll wheels. Also, it should be able to recognice when a fourth or fifth mouse button has been pressed.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      Many windows applications already support this, users of java applications expect this functionality

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      first wheel: scroll up / down
      second wheel: scroll left / right
      button 4,5,6,etc: programmable from MouseEvent/MouseEventListener
      ACTUAL -
      first wheel: scroll up / down
      second wheel: copies first wheel (MouseWheelEvent sees it as same wheel)
      button 4,5,6,etc: nothing
