It's cleaner to let the calling Elisp code worry about this.  That is to
say, the caller can bind the first click to a command that starts up a
timer to execute the "single click" action after a short period, and
bind the double click to a command that cancels that timer.

I vaguely recall that we used to try to separate single clicks from
double-click, and the resulting user experience was rather poor.  So it
should not be the default, but rather anyone who cares about this issue
can do as described above.
