You can record a macro that does scroll up/down 2-n times and save  
it. Macros do not cause the menu flash (when they are saved), so that  
might be faster for you, and you can have it scroll more than one  
line on the key press.

There's no way to do that — but it sounds like a candidate for the to- 
do list (as I also frequently scroll w/o moving caret myself, and  
fallback to actually position the caret with the mouse, somehow it  
never occurred to me that this could be a key action).
