Well, I think that the configuration panel icons can be dragged really
quickly. I'm using e17-svn with the default theme and the
software-x11-16 engine and the finger scrolling there is very fast and
generally smooth.

The main issue stays in the desktop, where the icon-dragging is really
very slow. This must be really fixed.
