hello,

when people drag something over a button
they expected to see the button clicking itself automatically after some amount
of time.

for example in a tab panels view, when I want to drag something from one tab
panel, to another one, I will dragover the tab-button to get it activated as a
click simulation

so:

tabButtons[x].addEventListener("click", function(){ p.switchTo(x); }, true);
tabButtons[x].addEventListener("dragactivate", function(){ p.switchTo(x); },
true);

this can be implementable in the user space but would be convenient to have it
as a default drag operation of the browser.

bye!
