I think we should consider offering a reshuffled mode
if that will make some new users like Emacs much better.

The reason I think so is that the definitions of mouse clicks
is largely orthogonal to the keyboard commands.  So it would not
be a lot of work to develop this, and even less to maintain it.

How about if someone implements it so people can try it?

I think the hardest part will be to modify the various mode-specific
C-Mouse-3 (Mouse-3 in this mode) menus to conditionally include basic
editing commands.  Here's an idea to make that simpler:

Define augment-mouse-menu to take a menu specification not containung
the basic editing commands, and optionally add those depending on
the interface choice.

Or perhaps define-mouse-menu to do that, and then put it on the proper
mouse click depending on the interface choice.
