1.x has a rmb->move to other tab option->TabName option, which is
discoverable and clear.  The only improvement that dnd would give to
that would be the ability to position the plot in the new tab, which
is sort of awkward in tab mode anyways.

This is certainly the easiest option, and might be well within good-enough.
