Even that can be done cleanly in separate modules: you need to export only one
function in the mouse code to feed button events into the system from the
keyboard code.

Or should the mouse simulation be done in the X server, as is currently already
done to emulate the 3rd button on 2-button mice on PeeCee? A disadvantage of
that is that it has to be done in gpm then, too.
