And you are against doing the little amount of work to provide the hooks that would allow such functionality to get added?

What is the user-level functionality that you are asking for?
I don't see what user-level functionality there would be
for drag events on tool bar icons.

All the previously stated features that other applications have, and any others that make sense; including, but not limited to:

* The ability to move the toolbar buttons around by clicking and dragging (perhaps when in a special mode, perhaps always). * The ability to right click on a toolbar button and bring up a context menu. * The ability to middle click on a toolbar button to perform a modified action (say, find-file-other-window instead of find-file). * The ability to click-and-hold on a toolbar button to bring up an extended menu.
