Endless mouse movement - like in Blender

When dragging things with my mouse (e.g. if I'm using the Pan Behind tool to drag a clip's in/out points in the timeline, or scrubbing a value), when my mouse reaches the edge of my screens, the dragging/scrubbing stops - kind of as you'd expect - unless you've used Blender. If I'm dragging something in Blender (e.g. moving something in the z-axis), there is no end to the distance I can move it - regardless of where my mouse pointer "should" be. I can endlessly pick up my mouse and  scoot it across my mouse pad repeatedly, and the object will continue to move; mouse input does not stop when the mouse pointer reaches the edge of the screen, because in this instance, the pointer just 'wraps around' and reappears at the other edge of the screen, so I can continue moving it. Lovely.


Let's have this in AE, please!
