it makes me half-shudder how some of our icons do cute special little things 
on MMB and most don't. in any case, the question is which do we pick:

1) ask trolltech to add MMB support even though it's not portable
2) declare that MMB is not supported in the tray. period.
3) #2 plus decide that we're moving to a new system for these things anyways 
which makes more sense than a system tray and if you want fancy things like 
middle clicks that's the way to go.

there is no "keep our own implementation" in the list above because i truly, 
truly hope that people don't decide to keep our own entire systray 
implementation just because of MMB when an xdg-compatible solution (which 
ksystemtray isn't right now) already exists in qt.
