I had a friend over using my computer last week.  She'd never used Linux before but intuitively assumed that using the scrollwheel on the mini-calendar display in the system tray would change the displayed month.  We should implement this feature, especially in the minimonth, to cut down on the number of clicks necessary to move the displayed month.

I just tested this patch and have to admit that I really like the scrolling functionality in the minimonth / date picker to change to the next/prev. month.

But in the time picker the scrolling functionality (as implemented by this patch) seems to be for nothing. Yes, I can scroll in the time picker and the new field is highlighted; but I (or the user) still have to click on the hour/minute field to select and save it. 

If the selected time would be updated while scrolling (allowing open time picker - scroll - close time picker action) this would be great.

Attached patch implement scrolling v2 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Updated to reflect ssitter's comment.  Scrolling in the timepicker now dynamically updates the textbox.  Scrolling the month does not update the textbox because the selection does not carry over.

The previous version didn't fire a 'change' event if the time had been adjusted via a scroll.  This patch fixes that, by routing all changes involving the grid through the 'onpopuphiding' event.
