Smooth scrolling in Mac OS X

any chance we'll get smooth scrolling in Mac OS X in JavaFX? Right now when scrolling with two fingers on the touchpad (e.g. in scene builder: scrolling in the Inspector), scrolling results in visible judder.
This is especially visible right before the scrolling (with momentum) comes to a halt. Most other apps (e.g. Cocoa apps and Firefox) offer much smoother scrolling. I don't know if there is a special API in Cocoa for getting smoother, more often updated values or if it's just a matter of interpolation. It feels alien to scroll in JavaFX on Mac right now.
