This new feature is a huge improvement to many of the admin pages. Thanks + congrats to all who have contributed to this so far.
Can I suggest a couple of enhancements to make it even better:
1. While dragging an item, it's not that easy to see which one you have hold of - the very pale yellow doesn't show up well on my LCD at normal viewing angles. For disabled menu items, with the additional 50% opacity it's even worse. Patch for Garland's style.css and system.css attached, which makes the yellows stronger. I find this much easier to use as I can see what I am dragging much more easily. See attached screenshots also.
2. It would be great if you could somehow cancel a drag operation? ESC or dragging outside the window would be useful ways of doing this ... my JS skills aren't up to proposing a patch though!
Grateful for any comments etc.
[Screenshot naming convention: *-drag.jpg show the colours while the row is being dragged; *-drag-previous.jpg show the colours when the row is dropped. Note also the yellow is now stronger during the drag operation than after it is dropped. This makes sense to me...]
