As I already said, I believe that there _must_ be substantially better
ways to give users the option to have web browser style bindings for
true links than the one you proposed.

We could have a common parent keymap for true links, that is text with
the `link' property.  There could be several predefined values for
that keymap.  At least two: "Classical Emacs" and "Web Browser".  But
the user could customize the keymap any way he wanted and specialized
links could extend it with their own bindings.

This has the advantage that the user who chooses "Web Browser" could
bind mouse-2 to anything he wanted (different from mouse-1), which he
can not do with your patch.

Why is all of this suddenly so urgent?  If we waited till after the
21.4 release, then we could have a solid and well tested high quality
implementation, rather than some hastily thrown together stuff.
