Applescript (or other code) to hold the 'Control' key until the next mouse click

Okay, I'm trying to write a script that can be run when a user wants to perform a right-click for the next mouse click. It's for use with a touchscreen (non-multitouch) interface that doesn't have right-click accessibility built-in for the Mac. The code for holding down the control key is easy. However, I have found it next to impossible to find ANY code that will let me detect a mouse click or tell the script to end after one click. Any ideas?

Try researching Universal Access, especially sticky keys. If it is possible to emulate mouse movement and clicks (right also) with keyboard using only one finger, what you need should be possible also.
