I don't like excluding happy Mac users completely, so how about this:
* BListView and Tracker do as you say
* When you configure a one button mouse, the system uses the option key 
+ click to emulate a second mouse button - Mac users always have an 
option key :-)

The point is that this will be a system wide feature, and since the 
option key is optional, it shouldn't hide any important application
