Try looking into Xmodmap.  That'll redefine the order for you.  I saw
recent versions of X insisting I do something goofy like:

  pointer = 3 2 1 5 6

instead of my usual:

  pointer = 3 2 1

to change my three button (not six) mouse to left-handed.  Put that
line in ~/.xmodmap and make sure .xinitrc or .xsession does something
with it:

   if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then
     xmodmap $usermodmap

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
