Hi Gary

I'm looking through the prototypes for the layout reorderer.  They  
look good.  I also had a few questions though:

- Who locks a portlet?  User? Administrator? Depends on institution?
- Can portlets become unlocked by user?

- When a portlet is being dragged, I thought we wanted in a portal  
context to have the layout change to show what the new layout would  
look like (similar to google) instead of using the red bar drop target?
