I do that for pasting - but it's incredibly fiddly if you want to hit 
two real buttons and drag at the same time.

Another workaround is that I've set the trackpad to detect corner taps 
as a button-2 click. Again this is OK for pasting but an ergonomic 
disaster for dragging :(

Strangely I've got a separate mouse, and I find the overloaded click and 
scroll doesn't cause me problems.
