I don't think we should attempt to detect or report touch laptops, but I
was thinking that I might want a Mouse/Touch toggle that could optionally
be added to the options menu along with volume.

Mostly though, I don't care about touch on laptops, beyond the fact that it
makes testing touch for mobile easier

I think in most cases it would be best to add the missing "Previous Menu"
menu item.

 Yes. Touch is important for game, but I am not worried about touch for

On Mobile, you can currently right click with a two finger press, which I
might make use of, but we shall see.
