set moused_flags="-3"

I guess there are no more mice without a third mouse button or scroll wheel around but there are a lot of notebooks with only two buttons.
Setting moused_flags="-3" in rc.conf enables them to paste the current selection by pressing both buttons simultaneously.

I haven't tested this yet, but I assume it doesn't mess up mice with a real 3rd button?

Sorry, I tried this today on a notebook with 3 buttons and indeed the third button only worked at the console no longer in X. Oddly enough the third button of a connected USB mouse still worked.
An I've noticed that pressing both buttons to paste already works without moused's flag in X (not at the console but that's not often needed for a desktop system).
