ie- scrolling back = pulling the object towards you instead of moving the camera back.. (and i suppose that's actually what's happening when using natural scrolling in 2 dimensional apps as well)
i'm sure i could get used to that if i really had to but i'm so glad we don't have to in sketchup

i think you're wording that a little wrong or leaving out some info..
yeah, you can turn natural scrolling on/off but it's system wide instead of app specific.. when i first upgraded to lion, i thought i might try natural scrolling and it does in fact make sense to me but once i opened sketchup, i turned the preference off and never looked back..
so, you might have a better point if apple would allow app specific settings of scrolling but they don't so we're (the people that might want natural scrolling for browsers etc but not in other apps) sol..
the main issue i see with google making un-natural (who comes up with these names anyway?) scrolling necessary is that many people using sketchup also use other apps where they prefer similar scrolling so our systems are still set to unnatural scrolling.. the fact that sketchup is locked to our preference is irrelevant.. the only way i'd use natural scrolling now is if my other drawing apps would do what google has done -or- the real solution (imo) is that apple allows the preference to be app specific (in which case, google could undo the forced behavior)..
tough call i guess but i think you'd be better off getting finger pointy with apple and trying to make them change their setup..
