I would really, Really, REALLY like to disable middle-click (paste)
on a program-by-program basis!

I use a Logitech Trackball.  (No room on my messy desk for a mouse....)

When in kwrite, or most frustratingly, bluefish, I FAR TOO OFTEN end up
with un-realized pastes throughout a document as I scroll up and down.

Ya, then, what would I do in the frequent times when I _do_ want to
cut-n-paste?  I guess just use the EDIT dropdown -> copy/paste....
