What actually happens:

No. `Live scrolling' is a property of scrollbar thumbs, not scrollbar buttons. 
You can't drag scrollbar buttons.

I'm not disagreeing that we should have live scrolling with the scrollbar 
thumbs, byt merely pointing out that the problem cited (the requirement of two 
or more scroll operations before a user reaches her/his destination in the 
document) can be overcome using the scrollbar buttons which scroll smoothly.

Quoth Steve Dagley: "The Mac installer code was never Carbonized and there is no
intention to ever change that."
