Fully general drag-and-drop is reportedly increasing in popularity on
all major GUI platforms: Motif, MS Windows, Mac, etc. I may have a
particular requirement for a CLIM program to at least receive (if not
send) a drag-and-drop from a program written in C/C++ (and running in
another UNIX process). Has anyone tried to access Motif's
drag-and-drop capability from Common Lisp at all, whether through
CLIM, CLX, CLUE, CAPI, or anything else? How difficult would this be?
If all major platforms now support this capability and its popularity
is increasing, should perhaps CLIM itself support it, long-term?
