Did not give a lot of thought, but enough to realise that it might indeed be a problem.

One idea is to use a custom version of surf [1] and ensure that scrolling and such works the way we want it to.

Another option is to do some crazy fudge on the touchscreen input and emulate both right click and scroll. (Hold <1s; left click, hold <2s; right; hold <3; enter "scroll mode")

We'll have to see how it's done in osso-xterm and the older browser, I guess. Probably someone already knows.
