Yes.  It works as I alluded to before.  The wheel is treated as some
kind of Z axis and changes in the position is mapped to button4/button5.
With a few X resources in place you can then use it to scroll in
you X applications.

Check out for more info on
how to use these mice.

NetBSD does not currently support them, but it will very soon.
