Yeah, but nautilus ought to have one, well-considered, unified and plain
notion on how to move these things around, be it text, HTML, gfx, files,
URLs, email and all the other 'stuff' a user will keep track of. If it's
cut/paste great, if it's drag-n-drop great, but it should be "the way" and
the same in almost all cases.

of course, it's possible that nautilus users and eazel users are two
entirely different groups of people and therefore divergence is
