Re: dialog items we all need

Sorry about that empty message... I'm having slight mailer problems today.

Better yet, it would be good for the containers to have a generic hook for
object-drop events.  This could then handle sounds or changes to the
representation of the object (such as the puffy trashcan icon) or whatever (I
realize that it is the draw method that draws the thing, but the object-drop
event handler (perhaps a catch or receive method) could adjust whatever
cariable needed tweaking so the draw method could just check a flag rather
than having to check the list of contained objects.)
