I have read discussion of making things easier for new users, the key
word "discoverable"
is used more than once on the page about the proposal, etc.

Which page? Which proposal?

The wiki, for example:

and the Bugzilla:

Not be be a jerk,

you're coming across as one. please, assume others mean well — as per
Code of Conduct.

but can you seriously post that with a straight face? The
quick checks I did on the history of that wiki didn't turn up anything about
the middle mouse button until last week and that bugzilla has several people
begging that the behavior not be changed. I don't see how that can be
considered a "proposal" or "discussion" that is viewed as a good motivation
for this sort of change.

the commit was reverted exactly because of lack of design and
communication before a stable release, until such time when a concrete
proposal can be formalised for discussion.

now, can we *please*, for the love of everything's that good and pure
in this Universe, close this thread? it's pointless going around in
circles: you want something to discuss, and the interested parties
don't have anything for you to discuss yet. wait at least until
there's *something*.
