I recon you think of stuff like what you can do on other platforms, like dragging a song from iTunes to the desktop etc. This will never be possible, because (correct me if I am wrong) there doesn't seem to be a way to tell workbench, that the next mouse up event is in fact meant as a drop event on workbench.

The way to do it is to ask WB where the pointer is at the point the mouse is released (the function is WhichWorkbenchObject or something like that). This only returns WB drawers/icons that have been dropped on top of. As you say, there's no way of dragging between apps - that would require some extensions to workbench.library and specifically the AppWindow functionality (there is an OpenAmiga project which partly implements this sort of thing but I never got around to trying it)

Actually I suggested that ages ago but now there's an official suggestions forum I'll post it again.
