I would very much like to see this on DND can be used
for a lot of interesting things besides files, and can simplify UIs
considerably. for example, I would really like to see a standard DND
type for dragging and dropping colors and all color selection widgets
should be able to recieve and provide such dnd items. an app which acted
like a palette to drag colors off of to customize other apps with a
consistant color scheme would be very cool.
