Assuming that the placement of the two buttons is suitable.. unless
they both have hard-wired functions, it should be possible to use at
least one of them for an additional function (fire/select)?

If so I'm not too concerned - worse case scenario, there are thousands
of great games out there that just used up/down/left/right/fire.. best
case scenario, we can write games like that _plus_ games which use the
touchscreen in innovative ways!
