How about grab-n-throw "gravity". We could assign "mass" too all drag-n-drop
objects and targets. I found that most of my throws went just off the side.
If there was a bit of gravity they would have hit home. Then of course we've
got to introduce other astrophysical concepts like magnetism, elecric charge
and karma to GTK/GNOME widgets :-)
