Admittedly, this is pretty delicate to do right:
- if nothing happens during those 500ms, run the timer.  O, that's the
  easy case.
- if a second clicks comes in before those 500ms cancel the timer.
  First difficulty: where do you put the code that cancels the timer?
- if another event like a click on another mouse button, or a keyboard
  key comes in before the 500ms, we should be careful to run the click
  command immediately (i.e. neither let the timer finish,
  not just cancel it outright).  And don't wait for this second event to
  complete to a key-sequence bound to a command (i.e. run the click
  command as soon as a C-x comes in, for example).
- but if that second event is a mouse-movement, we should not do anything.

I think the best place to put such code is somewhere around
function-key-map.  Just like down-mouse-N can be dropped and
double-mouse-N can be demoted to just mouse-N, we could turn mouse-N
events that aren't bound to new single-mouse-N events.  I guess we could
do it with code along the lines of:

  [Check that there's no mouse-N binding, but there is a single-mouse-N
   binding in the active key maps]
  (let ((event
         (catch 'timeout
           (let ((timer
                  (run-with-timer 0.5 nil
                                  (lambda () (throw 'timeout 'timeout)))))
                 (let (event)
                   (while (progn
                            (setq event (read-event))
                            (not (memq event '(mouse-movement))))) ; Any other?
               (cancel timer))))))
     ((eq event 'timeout) [single-mouse-N])
     ((eq event 'down-mouse-N)
      (push event unread-command-events)
      (push event unread-command-events)
