Re: What does this provide?

This program extends the capability of the mouse wheel, and other extra buttons (which most apps still don't recognize, like the side buttons or a left/right wheel). It allows them to act the same as when it isn't running, or to change the behaviour completely when you configure it to do so. It also can change behaviour based on modifiers, which not all apps that recognize the wheel do. Mozilla does, yes, but things like xmms don't. So while you do have "basic" functionality in most X apps these days, you still don't get that extra bit of configuration that can increase your wheel usefulness many times more.
