How could you possibly apply Xdnd to AfterStep?
I mean AfterStep is not a shell that can run an application when you 
drop an icon on the root window.

There are few ways to apply drag-and-drop to AS - dragging windows from 
1) Pager onto desktop
2) Dragging apps into Wharf so it would swallow  them.

item 1) does not require any Xdnd or anything - it is implemented via 
internal AS messaging and works rather well.

item 2) is implemented using OfficeX and could possibly be upgraded to 
Xdnd if anybody could convince me that it really is a worthy feature.
