Whiteboard

When the stack-applet is more mature and shaped, could it be the "standard" for folder-drops onto the bar. As you can see in the Applet demo, I imagine that two icons on the bar drift aside, making space for the drop, resulting in a new launcher or stack.

See: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/awn/+spec/stacks-like

About the implementation in taskmanager:
note: every icon containing atleast one launcher is considered an icon-launcher

- dropping icon between two icons (global)
The icon gets moved to the place between the two task-icons

- dropping icon (1) into an icon (2) (global)
The old icon (1) get's removed and all windows the old icon (1) possessed gets moved into the icon (2)

- dropping icon-launcher into an icon
The icon gets all the windows the icon-launcher possessed + the icon will become an icon-launcher and will start the launcher when clicked (left: if it doesn't contain any window, middle: otherwise)

- dropping icon-launcher (1) into a icon-launcher (2)
The icon-launcher (1) gets removed and icon-launcher (2) will now start the two launchers when clicked (left: if it doesn't contain any window, middle: otherwise)
