Re: [Nautilus-list] Canceling a drag.

You drag until you reaches the edge. What idea have a user about this..
Most users havn't the clue about what a window is. They only see the frame
around it. Placing something partly off the desktop isn't very wise so
what should happen if a user drags someting out to the edge and drops it.

Invisible windows at the edge of the screen don't "cost" very much and could
still be a valid drop zone.

- dragging Cindy C. off the screen and into real life, cool!

I don't understand what you mean. I must be missing something. Hitting the
edge of the screen either does that flippy virtual desktop thing or ... well
... hits the edge of the screen. You can't drag past the edge of the screen,
because the cursort stops at the edge of the screen. And there's no reason
that the last row of pixels is special -- it's at least part of the desktop
background, but might also be part of a window that's partially offscreen.

What am I missing here?
