Yeah-- for example, a chess game: to make a move, you could click on a
piece, then click on a square, but it would be nicer to be able to
drag the piece to the target square (and it would snap back if it's an
illegal move).

Can you drag snips from one pasteboard to another?  Do both
pasteboards have to be embedded in another pasteboard?
