  space bar should allow to easily move around the document without
  using scrollbars

Bug description:
  Since, I believe, the Nineties, all graphic editing and viewing
  software I have ever seen allows you to navigate horizontally and
  vertically through the document by hitting the space bar and moving
  the mouse, or by hitting the spacebar, clicking and dragging.

  Inkscape lacks this essential feature and obliges you to move through
  the document horizontally and vertically separately by using the
  scrollbars, which is tremendously annoying. Or perhaps it has another
  keyboard shortcut to allow you to easily move around the document
  using the mouse, different from the universal convention that has been
  omnipresent in every other graphic editing software in the last 20
  years or so.

  In either case, it should be fixed.
