I agree that the 1/2 way point would be an improvement.  Looks great, 

Any chance there could be an option, as per the request quoted below, 
to cancel the drag -- but at the same time, support drag-and-drop (so 
that if the dragged item is plopped on a compatible target, it can be 
moved/copied there)?

Another neat idea for a future feature would be the "poof" effect from 
OS X, like when you drag an icon out of the dock or some such -- drag 
an item out of a list box and watch it disappear?
