I think that this is arguably as discoverable as dragging any file in
the window: when not expanded the bottom-left menu is just a folder icon
with the name next to it. I say this because I attempted to 'discover'
precisely this feature when it wasn't there: I tried dragging that menu
and was disappointed when it didn't do anything.
If one accepts the notion that the bottom-left portion containing the
current folder name is an item representing the current folder, it could
also serve as a target for a context menu allowing one to delete or
rename the folder. However, it could be said that this would represent
confusing overloading of that bottom-left menu.
