For 4.5 All-In-One, It sounds like we're all in agreement that we want
Squeak to behave consistently across platforms out of the box, which
means twiddling that 3ButtonMouse setting in the .ini file.

So, now that enough people have weighed in, I will try to do that today.

PS -- Re: the All-In-One being a PITA:  Isn't it 10X more important
for the PITA to be directed at experienced users instead of new users?
 And, besides, I never really found it to be a PITA anyway, because
experienced users all know where the FTP site for the image is, and
heck, they're probably just using trunk anyway.  So, I don't really
buy the argument that All-In-One is a PITA for anyone....
