Summary: Missing and redundant dropspots when dragging a thread
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All

          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: LiquidThreads

Say we've got such a hierarchy of threads:

* 1
** 1.1
* 2

We want simply to flatten it. 

* 1
* 1.1
* 2

It's a pretty likely scenario, as people on forums of such a tree hierarchy
often answer to answers, instead of to the original message. We simply want to
correct someone else's mistake. 

It turns out to be not that simple. If you click "drag to new location" at 1.1,
the only possible "dropspots" are:

<drop here>
* <no dropspot here>
* 1
* <no dropspot here!!!>
** 1.1 - the one we're dragging
** <drop here> (redundant one! - does nothing if you try it)
* <no dropspot here>
* 2
** <drop here>
* <drop here>
<drop here>

Technically you can do it dragging all of the threads around but it takes a lot
of time and effort.

Another example would be a simple reordering of threads at the same level.
Again, it's possible but not easy.
