That's what makes this so hard. That's why I have the 'edit' mode, which
disables normal functionality and allows DND for everything.
Actions the user may want to perform:
- add items
- remove items
- move items
- configure items
- add panels
- remove panels
- configure panels
Of course the right-click menu has to remain small, the dialog(s)
understandable and it must be easy to find out how to do something. As
you can tell from the many attempts, I don't really know how.
Matters are complicated by the fact that we have multiple panels and
that plugins will generally be out-of-process.
I'm still trying out different ideas, but I will have to make a
decission fairly soon now, I guess, to have a chance to stabilize things.
