That should be very easy to implement - you can probably just modify the
if statement I have there for two finger scroll change it from 

if (finger-width > number)


if (finger-width > number) or (y-position > boundary_number)

so the code then starts reporting y motion as z motion.

Yes, horizontal scroll was a thing once upon a time.  I don't think I
have seen any recent mice that offer it as a feature, probably too hard
to use sanely.
