another thing that would be nice as user interface feedback would be
to dim the icon in the original location a bit if the file gets moved away.
in the moment its only drawn as selected, for both copy and move

Why not just move the icon if it gets moved? Think about it for a moment, if someone drags a file by its icon to move it, then the icon should move and leave a gap. This is simple and does not make people think that have done something bad by moving a file and then it going dim!

For a copy the icon should just remain and a new one float with the mouse movement.

Hope this helps.
