Add them :-)
Sorry, I actually meant 'set the value on the fourth axis' - I already
added the axis to the mouse event and mouse state structure.

Anyway, I'm wondering whether the number of buttons and axes should be
part of the AL_MOUSE structure. I'm assuming there will be something
analagous in the AL_JOYSTICK structure. Of course, having >1 joystick
is not unusual, whereas >1 mouse would be extremely unusual*, but it
would be nice to have the APIs looking 'aligned'.

for OSX I'd need to go to the USB HID manager and do my own coordinate
scaling, hit-testing, etc etc.
