Hello Björn,

The original design inherited from MouseEvent so detail was already
used. We have since made it more generic so that it applies to jog dials
and suchlike wheels as well; it now inherits from UIEvent. owever, after
discussing your comment, we feel that wheelDelta is clearer and more
self documenting than 'detail'. We plan therefore to keep wheelRotation,
since it's a clearer name.
