Gnome needs mouse button bindings
Submitted by Andrew Barrow
Gnome needs a feature to bind mouse buttons to functions, since many modern mice have 7 buttons (MS Intellimouse, etc). This would be useful for switching desktops or going forward/backward in epiphany.
The best place to put this feature would be in the keyboard binding section, which should probably be renamed to keyboard/mouse bindings. I know that there is already a utility (imhweel) that can do mouse bindings, but it is too complex for the average user. A GUI is needed to assign these functions. Even though imwheel allows different windows to have different functions for the same button, I think gnome would only need something that works in the global context.
Seems like this feature would be pretty easy to implement, but I am not familiar with the gnome (or Xserver) code, so I thought I'd leave it to the experts.
