Well based on 
I didn't think there was any point...

What I did do after writing my email above was to go and half implement 
it, mostly to see if it would be feasible to maintain a locally patched 

So if you're interested I have code that (hopefully) allows a middle 
button to exist, but I haven't added any way of configuring that button 
yet so it's size is just hard coded.
