As of right now, the K Desktop Environment does not integrate with
other window managers for X (including AfterStep).  KDE has its own
drag-and-drop protocol.  AfterStep uses the OfficX dnd protocol.  So,
to get DragEvent to work, you have to have applications that support

I chatted on #kde for a while.  It appears that they will be
supporting the "stadard dnd protocol added to recent X servers (?)" in 
the future.  Also, they plan to add "AS integration."  I don't really
know what either of these things mean.  The only other information I
have on the subject is that mosfet00 is the nick of the developer that 
is doing the "AS integration".
