How can I make the document icon of a (metacity) window drag-able
 
I'm new in Linux but the more i understand it the more I like it. At the moment i'm trying to make a theme for metacity but I have no idea how I can make the document icon drag-able and to interact with the desktop environment i.e. drag to the desktop to save or to the trash to delete.

Could you please give me some help on how this can be accomplished?
I'm not expecting the solution, just some "directions" should be fine... i think


This is where I got the idea about this theme: http://tango.freedesktop.org/Window_Experiments

It's not (currently) possible. Perhaps it should be. You could raise a bug in the bug tracker and ask for it to be added.

How can I make it possible then? What programming knowledge is required? I would like to give it a try,I have a lot of free time at the moment but i need some help on where should i get started?

I'm thinking about this-- it needs more of a detailed answer than I can just throw out off the top of my head. I might post about this on the Metacity blog, too, if that's okay.
