Note that the same could be achieved with an xorg.conf.d snippet.

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Trackpoint Wheel Emulation"
        MatchProduct "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint"
        MatchDriver "evdev"
        Option "EmulateWheel" "on"
        Option "EmulateWheelButton" "2"
        Option "EmulateWheelTimeout" "200"
        Option "XAxisMapping" "6 7"
        Option "YAxisMapping" "4 5"

Drop this in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-wheel-emulation.conf and it will be
persistent. I don't think we need a separate rpm for this.
