Since this key binding is only in flyspell-mouse-map, it will only be
rebound when the mouse pointer is over a misspelled word.  Note that
mouse-2 is normally bound to mouse-yank-primary.

I therefore don't think it will be a big problem in practice.  On the
contrary, I believe that having the context menu on the right mouse
button will feel more natural and be more discoverable to users.

I have attached an updated patch below.  If there are no objections to
it, would this change be safe for the release branch, or should it go
to master?

Best regards,
Stefan Kangas
