NDS: Alternate mouse emulation

I would like to suggest an alternate, more natural mouse emulation scheme to ScummVM DS port.

So far, left and right mouse buttons are emulated by switching to "left mode" and "right mode" using the direction pad.

To me, a more natural way would be having "left mode" activated as standard scheme and holding the left shoulder button would activate "right mode", thus on releasing the shoulder button would revert back to "left mode". This additional scheme could be chosen from the menu as an alternative to the existing one. Also possible would be having both schemes exist together since if I am not mistaken, the left shoulder button is not used in-game anyway.

I find this alternate emulation scheme much more natural, since it allows for fast right clicks between switching back and forth using the dir pad. See the Metroid game for a similar use of the left shoulder button together with the touch screen.

Great work on ScummVM!

I have often received suggestions for alternative control methods. In fact, too many to ever try them all. I do plan on implementing a few different ideas when I get the time though.
