Here’s a kludge. But it’s no one liner.

It takes a few milliseconds depending on size of the graphic.

on mouseUp pButtonNumber
   put inMe(the target, the clickloc)
end mouseUp

function inMe targ, where
   lock screen
   import snapshot from targ
   set the loc of the last image to the loc of targ
   put within(the last image, where) into returnValue
   delete the last image
   return returnValue
end inMe

Put the mouseUp handler in the graphic script.
The function can go in the graphic, group, card or stack script.
