Well, if it's for OS 9, you're probably out of luck unless you make your own
custom windows and your own drag regions. The reason is that the moveStack
message isn't sent until *after* you release the mouse on the Mac. Now if
this is for Windows, moveStack and resizeStack are sent continually so you
could probably get away with something like:

on moveWindow
  set the topLeft of stack "Secondary" to the topRight of this stack
end moveWindow
