I'm not sure everyone prefers that.  You proposed lowering it to 3,
the OP wanted 1, and I think no one else proposed any other value, nor
expressed opinions on that.

If everyone is okay with lowering to 3, I don't object (not sure why
you thought I did, as I didn't until now express any opinion on that).

That is a separate issue, and almost everything in this thread,
including what I wrote, described the original scroll amount, which is
unaffected by this variable.  I'm not sure I even see its effect in my
testing, and no one presented a clear recipe for me to be sure.
