This makes sense, but what do you think is the problem with 3 button mice that are specifically
supported, like the microspeed. The kernel recognizes it, but the 2 and 3 buttons don't work right
in X. Do we have to configure X separately so that the buttons act as expected?
Is it as simple as setting xmodmap up correctly?
If it is, maybe putting instructions in the FAQ, or somewhere would be a good idea.
