;;; Comments:
;; Enable mouse support when running inside an xterm.
;; This is actually useful when you are running X11 locally, but is
;; working on remote machine over a modem line or through a gateway.
;; It works by translating xterm escape codes into generic emacs mouse
;; events so it should work with any package that uses the mouse.
;;; Todo:
;; Support multi-click -- somehow.
;; Clicking on the mode-line does not work, although it should.
;;; Code:
;; Emacs only generates down events when needed.
;; This is too hard to emulate, so we cheat instead.
