This is why I was eventually persuaded that we should leave any mention
of Alt-dragging (or right-button dragging, as is more commonly
implemented in Windoze) out of the HIG... personally I still think it's
useful, but I can understand why it's a nobler aim to make all features
of the GUI apparent without having to hold down any clever modifiers :)
