No. This is a common misunderstanding. We need a keyboard equivalent for 
all operations you can do. The operations are on the level "copy a file", 
"move a file", (or even "set background image") and the fact that they can 
be done both with copy-paste and drag-and-drop doesn't mean we need two 
ways to do it with the keyboard.
