in principle it would be possible to set Options for Button globally,
like this:

SetOptions[Button,Method->"Queued"]

but since Button might be used at many places you might break things
outside of your package if you do so. I'd probably rather define a
myButton as follows and use that in your projects, then you'd be sure to
not break other code...

SetAttributes[myButton,HoldRest];

Options[myButton]=Replace[Options[Button],_[Method,_]:>(Method->"Queued"),{1}]

myButton[label_,code_,opts:OptionsPattern[]]:=With[{
newopts=Sequence@@Flatten[{opts,Options[myButton]}]
},
Button[label,code,newopts]
]


hth,

albert
