bug#11459: 24.1.50; Loss of mouse support (and more?) in new Buffer Menu

This is a regression and a real loss of functionality - a step backward
for users.  *Please* restore the ability to use a mouse, in particular
to select/open buffers.
 
Though it's hard to believe, it seems like this change was deliberate,
as all mention of using a mouse has been carefully removed from the mode
help/description.
 
If other features were also lost (dunno yet) then please restore them as
well.
 
It should not be the case that just because you think you have a nifty
new generic mode that might be usable in some places, we should throw
existing functionality overboard in an attempt to shoehorn good existing
code and features into the new but more limited mode.
 
A hammer is not our only tool, and we should not see everything as a
nail.  If Tabulated List mode does not offer what is needed to provide
all of the features that users are used to in the Buffer Menu, then
either improve Tabulated List mode first or extend the buff-menu.el code
itself to DTRT.
 
One way or another, please restore all lost features due to this major
rewrite of buff-menu.el.
