I drag-n-drop is intuitive to people who use Win/Mac/X
 windows, but not to new users. I have to deal with 
new computer users all the time. I'm talking about who
have trouble double-clicking because the jerk the 
mouse across the screen between clicks. If gnome 
wants to attract real-newbies then this feature should
provide some visual cue. I like the etched plus idea,
it's not too distracting but it would make the courious
click on it. Maybe George could try drag-n-drop and 
the etched-plus. drag-n-drop would still be useful for
putting the entries into drawers and what not.
