People were complaining about accidentally removing items.

I'm much more worried about the difficulties finding out how to move 
items, though. That's the main purpose of the new design.

None of the designs feel entirely comfortable yet, though. It's all 
getting much too complicated for my taste. I'm still hoping to find 
something which is both very simple and very obvious.
