I got no real response to the below question on gimp-user, so I guess it's time to start editing the source (:

I would like to either
1)  add a new 'pan' tool, to which I could then assign a key
2) somehow remap the middle mouse button to a key. Or more accurately, have a key perform the same function as the middle mouse button, but hopefully not *lose* the middle-mouse functionality.

Any opinions on which would be harder, or pointers how to accomplish either ?
I do program for a living, but have never touched the gimp source before.

Amazingly, I couldn't find a straight answer to this after significant searching...
I am fairly new to the gimp, so maybe one of you knows.

Is there a way to re-map the "middle-mouse-drag causes panning" functionality to a key?
It seems like practically everything else in the gimp is re-mappable, except this : /

Reason being I use a pen tablet that doesn't have a middle mouse button, and I don't want to keep switching to the mouse just for that.

Alternatively, is there a "pan" tool?
Then I could just press a key to switch to that as needed.

I know there is the navigation window, but I don't want to have to switch windows.
Also, there is the little lower-right-corner panning button on each image, but that is out of the way and doesn't give very good control.

I suppose there's always the source code (:

Thanks a bunch,
