The recent thread by Victor Chapel and David (not an idiot)
Ibbetson discuss possible alternative nomenclature for
the currently labeled left, right, and middle mouse buttons.

Chapel asks:
"Have any techwrlers solved this another way?"

Well, if you really DON'T want to use L-M-R, how about
one of the following:
* numbers (1, 2, 3)
* terms from anatomy: proximal, medial, distal
(with 'proximal' being the one closest to your head...)

Trivially yours,
