Re: [platform-ui-dev] RFC: Cut, Copy, Paste Proposal (end date = 12/03)

We still have a separation of concerns between different views.  I think 
it should work the same for internal vs. external.
Having different code for internal vs. external is a maintenance 
nightmare. 
This has been a topic recently on EC because people have been trying to do 
their own D&D within their own view, then have it work differently when 
talking to the platform.
The recommendation was to just use SWT's support with your own transfers.

Only for the "cut between workbench and desktop" case. Between workbench 
windows, you control both the source and the destination, so you know when 
it happens. The more general version, which requires a callback from the 
window system is not implementable on all platforms.

In any case, we would still need the callback for when the cut gets 
completed or canceled, so we can restore the image or attribute.
