1. dnd to ibar does work. i just did so dragging a firefox icon into ibar from
the border.
2. a lot of people don't KNOW you can do it - so adding a menu to the border
menu saying "add to..." is a helpful ui feature to make it easier when people
ask "how do i add app X to my ibar?". it simply tries to make another way of
doing it obvious. dnd is NOT obvious. it is implicit and handy.
