Reverse scroll mouse and natural scroll Trackpad on Mac

I frequently connect an external Monitor, a mac keyboard and a (non-mac) mouse to my MacBook Pro while code pairing. I love the natural scroll direction on trackpad but not so for the mouse scroll wheel. I happy to live with regular direction for scroll for a mouse.

Unfortunately, Mac OS X (Lion, Mountain Lion) does not allow such setting out of the box. There is a nice utility app called Scroll Reverser, just a few KBs in size, which can do it for you.

With the config shown in the screenshot above, you can set natural scroll for Trackpad and the reverse scroll (which we are used to) for mouse.
