Don't like this...  the 120 was presumably chosen to provide future fine 
grained control from a more accurate device, by constraining it to 120 now, 
we lose any future finer grainer control using Int's and instead just have a 
strangely chosen arbitrary number.  Why not just have "distance and 
direction" the wheel has moved, or remove this magic 120 entirely?

Cheers,

Jim.
