I think the best way to do this would be by using some kinds of drag and drop, but I can gess the fact that since the API change is already a lot of work, DND can be pushed back until the next version if necessary. (Alternatively, I can try to add it in my own plugin, but for that I will need information on how DND work, and what kind of information my plugin can receive)
