All the mouse button actions go through actions also.  The only thing
you can't do with actions is set the X,Y position, i.e. mouse motion
events (mouse motion is itself an action, but it has no way of
accepting coordinates from the user).

Also, some of the actions are overloaded - i.e. Notify() means "do
whatever the current tool does on left click" so you have to call the
actions to set the right tool first.
