First, I must admit my naivete for opposing Arlo's suggestion. I now
believe that "context click" is much better than any of the other options
I get the impression that many people would be happy with using
"click"/"select", "middle-click", and "context-click". (Including
Telsa:) Could we have a "show of hands" to see how many people support
this option and how many oppose it?
(Note: This is not a vote, it is a test to see whether we can reach a
concensus on this.)
It would be nice to reach concensus here, although I will certainly miss
the periodic debates over this topic.
