Menu/UI: Use wheel to increase/decrease integer fields

Hello all, I've been using CHDK for years and just now joining the forum, great work.

I think a simple change to quickly change values could be made to the integer widget in the menus that looks like this: [ 789 ]

When the number is large it takes a long time to move through them.  I could imagine a few minor tweaks:
  • "Set" to select the box
  • Wheel right/left to quickly increase/decrease the value
  • Menu to return

Maybe not all devices have a wheel, not sure.  If not, then:
  • Holding left/right while changing value for 3 seconds increases iteration speed 10x (I think its 1-per-second at the moment)

... or both features could be added and work together!

Cheers,

-Eric

FWIW, on cameras with the zoom lever / buttons, you can use that to change the increment.

edit:
The few exceptions that don't have zoom controls should have a workaround, either disp, erase or half press.

Don't forget what the H stands for.
