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.
