Hi Adam,

Ok, can you give some advice/pointers where to look to implement either picking 
up the target element or just to see what button was pressed (to ignore right 
mouse click). I do find the lack of information in expand webkit very 
frustrating. There is no overall plan or how the classes and interface fit 

Any help would be gratefully received.
