This doesn't seem to handle one of the important use cases, namely, being 
able to override horizontal scrolling to do script-based scrolling, but 
leaving vertical scrolling as being handled by the UA. IF the user goes 
diagonally, then one event will fire with two fields set to non-zero 
values, but the script is stuck: if it cancels the event, the vertical 
scrolling won't happen, and if it doesn't, horizontal scrolling will 
happen in addition to its own.
