Indeed.  Maybe we can bring them together by (when
`mouse-3-down-context-menu` is t) using a remapping from `down-mouse-3`
to `context-menu`.  It seems pretty intrusive, tho :-(

Maybe a better option is to make it so the `context-menu` event is kept
internal (give it a less attractive name), i.e. just an implementation
detail for the case where the menu pops up after a delay.
