I've found mouseemu quite useful - it also emulates a scroll wheel when
pressing alt and scrolling on the trackpad. Plus it can block the trackpad
Added benefit: it all works on the generic input layer, with no special
kernel code involved. IIRC the kernel support for button emulation is
scheduled to be removed, much as I hate to see it go for historic reasons.
