Already tried it a few months ago but it did not work because I forgot

kdesktop/desktop.cc) and it works a treat.
Unfortunately, implementing this feature would require to add new strings as I 
don't think we can re-use the popup of the icon view mode... And setting the 
wallpaper immediately after drop without asking would not really be a good
