[x] Drag and drop only (previous dialog).

accessible (another new dialog).

But personally I think DND is becoming more common for organizing panels

vote goes to the previous dialog.

It would be really nice if all items where in 1 tabs, both panel items and
available items, but
of course the dialog will be a lot bigger.... Well anyway to give a small

I think the launcher icon needs to be the icon used in the panel, but
for most other plugin the icon in the desktop file would be enough.
(well i think most people have only 1 tasklist in a panel??)

The previous dialog didn't stay on top and that made it sometimes tricky to

Well this could be solved by adding some window parameters, but for DND it
be nice if the border of the item list would be black when dragging plugins
to the dialog (remove them). Benny added this in Thunar, when dragging
