Combine this with the window list idea of Nathaniel... right click
enables the list (which should include desktop btw) instead of moving
the window down... thinking about it. Maybe if you could just drop a
file directly onto a nautilus window in the window list that would make
sense and serve the same purpose. it would also be more convinient for
other programs if you didn't have to wait until they pop up after a
while of hovering above the button.

well, ctrl+x ctrl+v is essentially the same and quite a bit faster.
