FYI, I am trying to get the mouse keys to act as modifiers, e.g. holding
down C-mouse-2, acts as a control key modifier.  I have this mostly working
but have run into a release event problem as outlined below.

Scenario 1: Bind C-down-mouse-2 and C-mouse-2 to commands.  Depress control
and mouse-2, release the control key, then release the mouse-2 button, you
will get a C-down-mouse-2 event and I believe a C-mouse-2 release event
even though the control key has been released, as desired.

Scenario 2: Depress control and mouse-2, release the control key, press a,
then release the mouse-2 button and you will get a mouse-2 release event,
not a C-mouse-2 release event, meaning there is no way to coordinate
modified press/release event pairs when there are intervening events unless
the modifier is held down throughout the entire sequence of events (which
is not very workable when other modified keys need to be pressed in the
interim).

I would suggest that once a modified key is depressed, the next release
event for that key, regardless of any modifiers now pressed, should match
the modifiers of the depress event, unless something a discard-events is
done prior to release.

Otherwise, one would have to affect all modified combinations of the button
to ensure that the associated release event is triggered whether or not the
modifiers are still held down.  That surely is not practical.  Neither does
it make much sense to program pairs of depress/release events where the
modifiers differ between press and release.

Can anyone address this?

Thanks,

Bob
