Yes, it's just a matter of defining the severity of the problem, and
determining the right solution.

Good examples.

But click and drag areclosely related operations. It's not a good idea
to have a click pop up a menu when you have something completely

I still think the middle button is a better choice; it's less likely to
conflict with other things.
