This is probably the most commonly requested change in the
history of wmx.   It's not done that way partly for consistency
with wm2 and partly because there might not be a middle-button
menu, in which case the left button is the natural place (and
I wouldn't want it to move from one button to the other as soon
as I created a link in ~/.wmx).

Actually now I think about it, I thought someone had already
hacked this change as an option?  Are you sure it's not in the
code already?  Maybe I lost the patch.

btw, I also think having a new xterm pop up whenever I clicked
and released a button (whether left or middle) would be very
annoying.  I guess so long as it can be compiled out...
