I think there is a more fundamental obstruction to using the
mouse-1-click-follows-link mechanism t-mouse.  On graphical displays,
if you hold down the mouse button for 0.45 seconds (by default), that
is supposed to set point where you clicked instead of following links.
In t-mouse-mode, this information is simply unavailable (and, OTOH,
impossible to extract).

In this light, I think we should simply state, at least for now, that
mouse-1-click-follows-link is for graphical displays only.
