moved from more than 4 pixels) I throw my "drop on self" event (which
is really a "click" event in this case).

It works fine on production for many years now and tens of users[1]
are happy using it daily :o)

Hum, it is not very nice to have some action only possible with
It can me ok with "easy life" features like reordering columns or
sorting, but not being able to edit the table content without a mouse
can be seen as a "no go" for many persons.
