When the platform doesn't have a smooth scrolling implementation on it's own that is reasonable (e.g., Linux, Windows). When the device doesn't have smooth scrolling on any platform in Chromium (e.g., keyboard, mouse wheel) - though on the Mac it may make more sense to plumb through the platform scrolling behavior instead. And to animate flick gestures for devices and platforms that don't provide it (e.g., trackpad on anything other than a Mac).

I'll update the ChangeLogs. Currently, testing is manual only, and only on Chromium when it's compiled in. I expect to have some automated testing as I figure out how to measure when things go wrong.
