I actualy really like the idea of implementing more click-and-drag
support in beagle. Primarily for stuff like files, I have no idea how we
would start to implement this (as I'm pretty clueless as to most Gtk

I looked into drag 'n drop a while ago.  You have to use an object in
Beagle that has drag 'n drop characteristics, and then use it to hold
the information of say a picture.  Then a similar drag 'n drop object
has to be in F-Spot in the form of a panel which would be the
destination for a picture from Beagle.  That's a simplification but
somewhat how it works.

On Gnome this would work well.  You first drag Beagle to the
appropriate virtual window where F-Spot is located, and then drag the
appropriate pictures from Beagle into the appropriate folders in
F-Spot.  Seems dreamy. ;)  Could work.

I don't know how many of these capabilities are available in Mono.


As far as implementation goes, anyone have thoughts?
