[FEATURE REQUEST] - Editor mouse wheel selection for mesh / materials selection

Sorry if i cannot explain this very well.
I saw the GDC talk about modular workflow by bethesda, they mentioned that they put in a function that lets you scroll the mouse wheel to roll through selections of meshes and materials. This would be an amazing feature to have in the editor.
I think in their engine they hold down a key combo, then mouse wheel.
Would be great for modular workflow.
