Tobias, I apologize for replying to your personal address. Here's to the

IMHO it is just a waste of space because it is not a good indicator for
a drop target. Not one of the ppl I showed it - all of them designers -
recognized it as a drop target and, frankly, the image in there is
simply wrong. If we need to make it recognizable as a drop target, we
need to make it a drop target icon, that's all. A Wilber background
image tha doesn't even show up entirely is a poor indicator. It looks
more as a - ugly, but that's debatable - decoration than anything else.

I'm not saying that we shouldn't have a drop target in the toolbox
window, but that it should be more obvious and take less space from the
tools that are the main function of the window.
