Make Concentric Knobs Easier to Use

I wish there was a way to make concentric knobs such as those on the G1000 easier to use. They have five actions - outer knob rotate CW/CCW, inner knob rotate CW/CCW, and knob push.

I propose the following:

  1. Mouse wheel push (Mouse 3) does the push action.
  2. Mouse wheel up/down rotates the inner knob
  3. Mouse wheel up/down while Mouse 2 is being held rotates the outer knob. Or separate commands for outer wheel rotate CW/CCW that I could bind to Mouse 4/5 or wheel right/left actions for mice that support them.

This allows users to easily work both knobs without having to reposition the mouse cursor from inner to outer knobs.
