the first thing i did was i disabled desktop icons (none), i.e., for me
left mouse button is free on desktop.  in my opinion any window manager
should allow choosing, which mouse button is used for which purpose
rather than fixing it.  there can, of course, be defaults, but those
should be changeable.
