New technical notes on the Reorderer component

Hi everyone,

As many of you have probably heard, we're starting in on the process of 
refactoring out the re-ordering logic from the Lightbox. We'll be 
creating a new JavaScript object that can be used to provide accessible 
drag-and-drop services for new Fluid components.

The working name for this library is the Reorderer. It's a bit of a 
mouthful. Any suggestions for a better name?

Joseph and I have been working on some architecture notes for this 
refactoring. Take a look and let us know what you think. Be forewarned 
that much of this material is quite technical in nature.

There is also a list of JIRA items filed under the "Reorderable" 
component for the tasks we intend to do over the next couple of weeks.

If you have time to pitch in and lend a hand, please feel free.
