Unfortunately, this doesn’t work with Breezy, which does include an evdev driver, but only as a protocol option of the mouse driver.

But behold, here is the xorg.conf entry for breezy.
It is important to leve the “Identifier” option to “Configured Mouse”, otherwise it won’t work. Also the “Dev Name” option did not work for me, so it’s commented.

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "Protocol" "evdev"
        Option          "Buttons" "7"
        Option          "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 7 6"
#       Option          "Dev Name" "Microsoft Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 1.0A"
        Option          "Dev Phys" "usb-0000:00:04.2-2/input0"
        Option          "Device" "/dev/input/event1"
        Option          "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
