And that's what that "special button" is for. :-)

If the touchpad has physical buttons (or physically-drawn "virtual 
buttons"), why do users even expect tapping to produce a click? The finger 
area is for moving, the buttons are for clicking. The only case in which 
tapping makes sense is if the touchpad has NO buttons at all (but then how 
do you right-click? So I don't expect this to be a common case, except maybe 
in Apple's one-button land).
