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.
