(Windows) $75 - Nib: Left-click, drag, right-click, double-click without using mouse buttons

I think I may actually shell out the $75 for the little software program called Nib, which automatically clicks the mouse for you. I've been trying it out for the past month, but only today discovered the gestures for right-click and double-click.

Amazingly, then, you can do left-clicks, drags, right-clicks, and double-clicks, without using any mouse buttons:

Left-click: Pause the mouse
Drag: Pause the mouse, then quickly move it
Right-click: Move the mouse to the right, then back
Left-click: Move the mouse to the left, then back

Here are the settings I'm using:

Incidentally, this lets me use my Logitech trackball with my *left* hand, since I no longer need the buttons:
