I'm ready to switch to XFCE immediately, it's awesome...
...except that I have ten years of muscle memory telling me that I resize windows with alt-middlemouse and lower them with alt-rightmouse. This is exactly the opposite of the XFCE defaults.
Is there a way to rebind alt-middle and alt-right?
I saw this on the wish list, but it was scratched out with a comment saying it was already possible. Unfortunately, the "already possible" instructions were not obvious to me.

There's a setting to change "alt" into "super" or something else (a requirement to play StarCraft!), but I can't see anything to change the mouse buttons... (Not in the Xfce Settings Editor, xfwm channel, anyway.)

Yep, it looks like the buttons are hard coded in xfwm.
else if ((ev->button == Button2) && (state) && (state == screen_info->params->easy_click))
clientLower (c, None);
else if ((ev->button == Button3) && (state) && (state == screen_info->params->easy_click))
part = edgeGetPart (c, ev);
edgeButton (c, part, ev);
FWIW, the logic in events.c is simple enough that I just switched Button2 and Button3 everywhere and recompiled to get the behavior wanted.
Of course, now I'm half-retrained and neither button does what I expect ;-)
