I have a (actually 2) "Advanced Gravis" 3-button mice.  Basically,
they're Logitech 3-button bus mice with a control unit that interfaces
the PS/2 bus to ADB.  The second and third buttons are configurable,
but default to be the left and right arrow keys.  For A/UX X Windows
compatibility, they give you left and right arrow keys, modified by
the option key.  It works...

They are for me--at least on PCs (which is where I've used them.
I despise 'em.
