I'm not claiming it works.  I'm claiming that there's no good reason why
it shouldn't work, so if it doesn't work it's a bug.  We should remove
HAVE_MOUSE and fix any breakage that might ensue (but since Emacs works
fine under xterm with xterm-mouse-mode disabled, I don't expect too
much breakage at least under GNU/Linux).
