pondering what exactly I should bind all of these buttons to. :D

I bought one after reading the review of it on Toms Hardware.

Here's my settings:
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"   "ImPS/2"
    Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"
    Option "Device"     "/dev/input/mice"

The wheel works fine. The additional button on the right side appears to behave identically to the right mouse button. The additional button on the left appears to behave like clicking the wheel button (i.e., the middle button) in Mozilla and appears to have bizarre, unpredictable effects in gnome-terminal (if I press it while in "less" then "nano" gets started and some text gets pasted in). The small button behind the wheel does nothing.

I wouldn't even know what's useful to map them to in GNU/Linux + X.
In windows they act as browser-back and browser-forward for Web Pages and the shell. Basically I don't need them.

if your window manager supports it you can use the extra buttons to move/resize/raise/lower windows by clicking in the windows instead of using the title/borders area only (since you are pretty sure that application in window doesn't use the extra buttons).

I had it configured like that with older version of fvwm, unfortunately it doesn't work with newer version :-(
