Wheelmouse and modifiers

In QScrollview, Ctrl+wheelmouse scrolls around faster.
In QTextEdit (even though it's a QScrollview), Ctrl+wheelmouse changes the zoom.
(and Shift+wheelmouse does nothing in either of those)
Which means QTextEdit has no "scroll faster" wheelmouse possibility, that's the bug here.
The same problem happens with any text widget that uses a qscrollview (e.g. a word processor).
IMHO it would be more logical that Shift scrolls faster, and Ctrl zooms.
This is just like Shift+letter vs Ctrl+letter. Shift changes the result slightly,
Ctrl leads to a totally different action.
Qt: can QScrollView be changed, at least so that Shift+wheelmouse scrolls faster too?
KDE: would this change be ok? Or are there too many people used to
"Ctrl+wheel zooms faster", that it must be made an option?
(please do not cc qt-bugs in your replies).
[PS: some apps seem to have a "scroll slower" modifier. Can't see the point in that though.]
