Left-handed mice.

So I am in the literally uncomfortable position of being a left-handed person in a world full of right-handed ergonomically sculpted mice. The problem lies in that, despite using my left hand for mouse control, I still use the left and right buttons appropriately- my hand rests diagonally across the mouse, index finger on the left button, and then I flick it over whenever I need to right-click.

I'm starting to feel the need for a left-handed mouse, but most of them are built assuming that you use two fingers for control, or- god forbid- you have your right button set as primary. Gross. I'm not sure where I'm going with this and I'm hardly enough of a niche market to suddenly demand something this weird from the mouse industry, but damn I'd love to get my hands on a mouse that was neither generic nor weirdly sculpted against my natural grip.

I'm not even sure if this makes any sense, but it seemed worth mentioning.
