Files can be dropped there and users can later drag them from the area back into another folder or application. We could do something similar.

       * Have a simple D-Bus service that allows to store/​retrieve a list of URIs (potentially grouped by an application or task specific ID). Have a standalone application or a panel plugin implement this to visualize the files that are in memory. Maybe split up the visualization into a "​copy"​ and a "​cut"​ area. In Thunar, add URIs to this storage if Ctrl+C/​Ctrl+X are pressed or whatever other methods there are to initiate a copy/cut operation. Heck, maybe even allow arbitrary objects to be stored instead of just URIs, perhaps using a semantic temporary storage. We could also think about defining standard storage group IDs for common purposes. ​ --- //​[[jannis@xfce.org|Jannis Pohlmann]] 2011/09/20 15:40//       * Have a simple D-Bus service that allows to store/​retrieve a list of URIs (potentially grouped by an application or task specific ID).
