All middle clicks should (And usually do) have an alternate way to do
the same thing. Really, the middle click is supposed to be the alternate
shortcut to whatever it is. Usually its on the context menu, and likely
also available with a shift or ctrl or alt click...

If there's not, its a bug IMHO.

Personally I use five button trackballs, which makes it easy to remap
middle click away from the scroll wheel. (Now if only I could figure out
how to use the extra two buttons for something useful...)
