I see.  I overlooked a big one.

What I meant is that even if the proxy icon is displayed for a dired
buffer, it becomes undraggable once the buffer modification flag is

Anyway, I don't have a good idea about implementing the Finder-like
proxy icon behavior in an acceptable way now.  Non-trivial changes
should be avoided at this stage, and I'm negative about changing the
dired code just for this Mac-only feature.
