Similar to gestures use quick up down wheel to continuously
scroll up or down, or to go faster or slower. left/right buttons as
breaks and accelerator.
Useful for all kinds of things. (I'm leaving them for the other half
of the bakers to complete the other half of this invention)
Maybe you just need moar buttons

||...unless [pashute] was proposing left/right buttons to insert carriage returns and line breaks.

||So autoscroll (the thing in most web browsers on Windows where you middle-click a neutral area on the page and then move the cursor relative to that spot to control scroll rate and direction), but controlled using dedicated buttons on the mouse? I'm happy with my Logitech scroll wheel that unlocks when I spin it fast, and then continues to spin for 30 seconds or so. I'm also happy with the horizontal scroll wheel on the same mouse, though it doesn't have that feature (but isn't notchy to begin with).

||^ fodder for viral videos if a haploid, bevel or cage gear is moving the two close mousewheels.
