The swap thing is fine for those wanted a more terraria like feel in the control scheme.  Jumping the mouse one two to number pushed and number pushed +1 would work too.  Since either one would work just go with what every take less of your time. 

I don't think we would want to have number pushed copy(instead of move) a spell into slot 1 as that is costing you one of your spell slots.  As for having things switched around this is not much of a problem as you can always see you spell bar, so when the spell that originality lived in slot 5 ends up in slot 2 its simple to tell.

The OP's idea is what I meant by toggleable buttons. Making it customizable is best of course, but I'm thinking the same thing a lot of people are thinking:

One button is the default "quick slot" button. It's mapped to whichever key you most recently selected from 1-0. All other buttons on the mouse can be hard mapped anyway you want.

And, yes, this is the Terraria "way" and it's the game I've been playing just before AVWW so maybe I'm biased :)

I haven't played Terraria but i'm assuming this is the same way as Diablo works?

At the moment, I seem to be getting along fine with the current buttons.
I have Q,E,R,F,1,2,3 and the mouse buttons bound and I never seem to encounter problems

I am using the default control scheme.

Pressing Z allows me to look at two rows of the inventory.

Choose the 3 different spells you want as backup and put them in the first 3 columns in the top row of the inventory.

Press R to swap the rows when the other spells are of use.

Then you can use the mouse for the backup spells.

Press R went you want quick access to the other 3 again.
