Not possible with 4.4.x -- 4.6.x will do this automatically without a 
way to change it back (which I kinda don't like, actually, but... whatever).

Just to be sure we're talking about the same thing -- you want to leave 
left-click alone, and switch middle and right?  There's no GUI for this; 
you'll need to use xmodmap directly.  Try googling "xmodmap pointer 
mapping"; that might lead to something useful.

Check out the Window Manager Tweaks settings panel, Workspaces tab.

Nope.  Maybe for 4.6, but probably not.
