Sorry for that, I was in funny humor yesterday :)
Normal use in touch screen devices is to catch the "long touch" as right 
mouse, Qtopia does this, in fact if you open notes in Om2008.x distros 
create a note and then on that one you click and hold your finger you'll 
see a popup menu.
I think the same could be implemented by frameworks or by daemons but 
unfortunately I don't know how. This could solve almost the right-click 
I think mid click could be solved with a button (AUX?) and left click or 
right click as suggested by Risto
Bye :)
