If I understand correctly, when drag-&-drop was first added to AS,
the standard was OfficX; DnD/Xdnd (I've only seen it the first way -- DnD)
came around a few years later, & I suspect no one has requested this
feature be updated to conform to DnD standards.

However, looking back over the AS mail list, Sasha has mentioned he
is reworking the Gnome module to be gnome2 compliant. Perhaps adoption
of DnD will be one of the benefits we'll see from this.
