Pixel-based scrolling would be nice for my applications too. I use org-mode and iimage-mode to keep a laboratory notebook, and scrolling with this combination is awful. If I want to scan through my notes I have to export to html and open in a web browser to get the right feel.

Also, on my tablet PC (Windows 7), every application I have works great with single-finger panning (similar to the way iPod/iPad scrolls) except for emacs.

Emacs on OSX Snow Leopard, v. 23.2. I'd like wheel-scrolling that
works like Textmate's scrolling. It's not really line by line, I think
it is pixel-based. Either way, with Textmate, you can scroll a huge
file with the mouse without it jumping large portions, and it also
doesn't have rendering glitches. Emacs does. The keyboard scrolling
for me is fine -- I mainly use C-r/s when using the keyboard, anyway.

I understand exactly what you mean by pixel-based scrolling. This is
how many other editors work, e.g. Notepad or Textmate. I'd love to
have that as well, but I don't think there is anything like that in
Emacs today. Many parts of Emacs are about columns and lines, e.g. the
size of frames are "measured" in columns and lines.
