If I remember correctly, in 1993, the time I first used Linux, many
X apps made use of the middle mouse button (this is valid of course
for other UNIX systems with X11). So, the middle mouse button has
some tradition in the Linux world. I would say that combining
the middle mouse button with the wheel is a design error.
