So, I've tested it and it does the job. Thanks Peter!

Since you've surely noticed in the meantime I'm rather a perfectionist, so I do
have a couple of minor things I'd still like to improve/add:
1) during the drag operation you can no longer see the tabs, we need a way to
indicate to the user which tab he's going to be dropping onto. I see 2
possibilities: either a small popup notification above (in terms of z order)
the plot pixmap each time the mouse reaches a different tab, or some text in
the status bar ("Drop onto: [tab name]"). As a side comment, we don't use the
status bar enough if you ask me (see inkscape for example, I discovered a lot
of things just reading the status bar)
2) the area between the axes and the border of the plot (where axis labels are)
is flickering a lot during the drag operation. There must be a way to avoid
this as nothing else flickers. This is just nice-to-have (while the previous
point is more important), but if it's easy...
3) for discoverability as well as users migrating from kst 1.x, I think adding
the copy/paste or cut/paste options through the Edit menu + the RMB action in
the context menu should be done. One point we should still clear is whether the
context menu should be the same in zoom mode and layout mode. I'm for some
common and some different entries, but I'll detail it in a different report...
For now, both are the same and we can add the action to both.

I'm reopening the bug until everything is implemented so that we can better
track the status in bugzilla.
