That popup could still be a bit more clever, for instance when dragging 
from an ftp dir where you don't have write permissions, it's pretty 
obvious that the only choice is "copy". Presenting the user with two 
other options that he can't use is confusing, the popup has no reason to 
appear. A simple rule could be to copy when dropping to a different 
filesystem, move otherwise.
