Actually the temp area would only have to store a reference to the locations of the files that are dragged to it (very much like symbolic links). This could easily be stored in memory, and the only physical files transfer would occur when transferring from the temp to another location. An alternative is the "script" your file transfers graphically or otherwise, and then only have the actual physical transfers happening when you click "go" (argh!) or whatever you want. TO me this sounds like a good idea...
