Do the GTK/GDK allow the programmer to play odd tricks with the DnD?
Say, if I realizes that a widget ( in another application ) accepts drops, then I could fake a user drag to that widget from one of mine? Or, I could fake a drag request from that widget, to me...

( Sometimes I have wished that this would be an opportunity. Instead of dragging data, I could "attach" it to the pointer, and click the data in place. )
