Yeah, would work. Initially there was this idea of "spring-loaded"
opening for folders too - so that you could drag a bunch of files and
hold the mouse over a folder for a second or so and it would open that
folder for you for the duration of that drag - so you can drop to a
folder somewhere down in the hierarchy.
