Drag and drop raid sort

I can't remember if I saw this was coming in nUI 6, but it would be really nice to be able to drag and drop to resort the raid frames rather than group/class/name.

I'm not talking about changing the group number they are in - only where they appear in the raid frames.

Wow... that would be interesting... I'm gonna have to think on that one.

I like the concept of it though.

To expand on rationale:

Let's say you are a healer, and you want your tanks in the top row starting from the left. Next to them you want the slightly under geared player that may need a little more attention, and you want to put the idiot that always stands in fire in the bottom right corner since everyone knows you can't heal stupid.

I don't know enough about how addons work, but if in a 25 man raid frame for example, if each "box" has a unique number 1-25, the pre-programmed sorts assign the player to the appropriate numbered slot. The concept would be to Ctrl-Click and drag to put peole to where you want them, overriding the default sort. You could add a /nui sortreset command or something to go back to the default, or have it reset on a new group.

I guess it might get a little hairy when people leave group and a new person comes in. But hey, that's why you are the programmer and I'm not, right?

You'd think that standing in the fire long enough would dwindle the huge number of voters standing in fire pretty... drastically..
