Mouse wheel seekbar granularity

I notice that, when I use the mouse wheel to manipulate the seekbar, the seek step granularity is rather coarse. For example, listening to a 76-minute mix, I get ca. 7.5 steps. So far as I can tell, the default algorithm (in 1.3.8, with the Default User Interface, in Windows 8.1) is:

±30 minutes for stupidly long files (e.g. a 3 hour mix)
±10 minutes for really long files
±5 minutes for long files
±1 minute for single tracks

Is there not a setting that selects skipping by a constant amount, say, 20 seconds? I have yet to find such a setting.

Lurching forward by an amount of time that is pseudo-proportional to the total length of the file seems strange. It's not actually proportional, since the step sizes are only roughly related to the file playback length.

You can keybind a variety of skip times. I've got 5 seconds on the plain arrow keys.

I have no doubt, but if I wanted to skip with the keyboard, I would have asked "How do I skip with the keyboard".

i think you were offered an alternative because you already know the answer for what you asked.
