Lefthanded Mouse in Java Desktop Environment

Ever wanted to left mouse in Microsoft Windows or KDE? The options to swap mouse buttons are easy to find. In Microsoft Windows it's Start -> Control Panel -> Mouse; in KDE it's Control Center -> Peripherals -> Mouse. On the Sun Ray server, running the Java Desktop Environment this option is buried in an unlikely place. It's at Launch -> Preferences -> Accessibility -> Keyboard -> Mouse Keys -> Mouse Preferences. Mouse settings buried under keyboard accessibility; how's that for usability! (Screenshots below taken with GIMP.)
