Are there any apps other than test suites that depend on SetPointerMapping
not allowing multiple buttons with the same mapping?
It would seem much more likely they'd depend on GetPointerMapping not
returning a mapping with buttons that are mapped to the same value,
so that's where you'ld want to add something to XFixes (perhaps making
the non-XFixes GetPointerMapping return 0 for those buttons).
