Actually, there are 2 ways to do this. I've now updated my page at:
to include a diagram - which may make things clear.

tpscroll makes button 2 act as scroll or click depending whether it's 
being dragged at the same time.

  My modification to XF86Config-4 dedicates button 2 to scrolling, and 
gets middle button functionality back by emulating 2 buttons (this is 
perfect with the 2+1 button layout of the A22p, but won't work with the 
  3-in-a-row layout of the t-series buttons.
