xorg options for Jaunty

Since Jaunty the Ubuntu people thought it would be a good idea to cripple the xorg settings (they disabled middle mouse button emulation and ctrl+alt+backspace xorg reset hotkey).

Luckily this can be fixed by editing the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file by adding the following:
# Enable middle mouse button emulation (left+right click at the same time):
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"

# Enable crl+alt+backspace xorg reset
Section "ServerFlags"
Option "DontZap" "false"
