Someone had hinted at using dragDrop as an way to see what control a
mouse was over during a mousedown, but I did not understand it then.
Well, I worked out this idea and it worked completely for what I was
I needed a real or simulated mouseUp, mouseLeave, and mouseEnter that
started from a mouseDown that DID NOT go to the control that started
the mouseDown but rather to the control the mouse was over.
I have uploaded to my user area a stack that shows all of these states
in the way that I needed it to.

My code may not be optimized but the simulated states work great. Let
me know if I missed anything.
