I don't know - there are no plans for that at the moment.

Ah - it *does* work. If you stay still for a while, a couple of tenths 
of a second, the click is passed through to the scrollbar. The same 
applies to other widgets contained in a ScrollPane.

The idea, then, is to click -- brief-hold -- drag.

This is what I meant about it being "a *little* intrusive" :-)

I wonder if tweaking the timeout duration would help. It's in ScrollPane 
class >> #touchScrollStartTimeout, currently set to 250ms...
