That is why configuration dialogs were invented ;) there could be an 
option which let you choose to slide menus and shelves (or anything 
else) by click or gesture (or both :P )

Sad to say but iPhone/iPodTouch teach this.... (I don't want to say it's 
the ONLY way to do GUIs, and for something I don't like them, but I saw 
a colleague of me using it as he was using a notepad or photo album in a 
very user friendly way...)
