Why not simply lie to Gnome?)

Since Gnome menu is meant to supersede .wmx menu, why not use left for
window list, middle for Gnome menu, and right for rubberbanding? This way
the UI doesn't change too much. 

Also, the possibility to leave the buttons in wmx-compatible mode would
also appeal to some people like myself. I don't see myself using gmc in
the near future, nor the Gnome menu, as I like the simplicity .wmx menu
