However, since a tool-bar item is just a graphic (not a specific name,
a menu item), why not treat tool-bar items more like we treat portions
the mode-line: why not recognize different mouse button events on
items? Why not, say, be able to have mouse-3 on a given tool-bar
something different from mouse-1 on the same item?
No other application I know of does this. Emacs is already very
from standard GUI applications, and adding more Emacs specific GUI
will only make it harder to port to current and future toolkits. Also,
kind of operations do you have in mind?
