If I understand your need, the answer is sure.  In its most basic form, you
can add the following to the script of your destination field:

on mouseEnter
  set the acceptDrop to true
end mouseEnter

on dragDrop
  put the dragData into me
end dragDrop

The above is exactly the reason why GetInLine was developed.  Execute the
following in your message box:

  go url "http://www.tactilemedia.com/download/getinline.rev"

This is not a complete solution to your problem, as it is only for list
reordering at the moment, but it could be adapted to suit your needs.

Of course you can always make a donation to further its development. :-)
