I'm also left handed and using the middle finger for left click leave my
index finger for middle or right clicking or scrolling with the wheel. I
find it much easier to do this way, specially when programming, where I
do lots of copy & pastes with middle click, and playing first person

But for me the greatest advantage is that, as my index finger is more
precise than the middle one, I leave my best finger to the activity that
need most accuracy: scrolling with the wheel. The middle finger just
have to click, very easy.
