For moving a window to another desktop, you can use Ctrl+Alt + scroll on 
the title bar... or other things you define in rc.xml. Is a different 
way to accomplish the same thing (dragging) really necessary? I can 
understand dragging a maximized window to a different head, but dragging 
to a different desktop seems overkill.
