You could add an angular encoder and have that trigger the up/down buttons.
Wouldn't generate a true slider, per se, but that would give a knob with 360
degree rotation that would change the values as you twist.

Making a true slider would require playing with the firmware...

Another option, for the Ex/MkII users, would be one of those programmable
knob/slider midi controllers. Wait... there is a midi controller value for
data entry, anyone know if the MkI would respond to that?
