I could implement dragging this way: first move the pointer to the position
where you want to begin drag. Press a "begin drag" button, and it leaves
some kind of marker there. Then move the pointer to where you want to finish
drag, press a button again, and a drag event is generated for these
positions. I'm just brainstorming, if you really need such awkward feature
let me know.
