Right... I'm inclined to agree with Brian that sharing "in-place" is more natural at the time you want to share stuff, but I think it would really need to be accompanied by some sort of vfolder view of everything you were currently sharing.  If that view could work as a drop target as well, you've got the best of both worlds-- except when you want to share something from your terminal, of course :)
