I suppose some kind of standard for user settings is unavoidable.
$home/lib/input perhaps.

Looking at what you actually wrote, (because I know you too well to think your meaning can be assumed from the topic of conversation, :) ) "mousing" in general isn't much of a problem for me. To click or select, I move the mouse, the movement of the pointer catches my eye, and then I can position it as needed. When scrolling, I want to keep my eyes on the text, not be distracted by a pointer.

I'm too old to use vi.
