Ideas for future Grid Reorderer Functionality

Hi everyone,

The other day, Jess, James, and I were discussing the grid reorderer and we
started to talk about some things we'd like to see in the component.
Currently, Grid Reorderer feels like the middle-child of the reorderer
family: ignored and overlooked (no offense to any middle children in this
mailing list ;-).

Hopefully with some new features, the grid reorderer can come of age.

Attached are some short wireframes demonstrating some new interactions and
use cases:

Image 02: Two different methods of moving objects - ordered and unordered.
Image 03: Custom rules governing movement.
Image 04: Dynamic grids.
Image 05: Objects rearranged on a grid.
Image 06: Locked objects in a grid.

I have written a wiki page giving a little more description for these
images:
http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Grid+Reorderer+-+Extending+Functionality

I'd like to hear what other ideas people have for the grid reorderer.
Possible interactions, use cases, weird and wacky - let's hear them!

Developers on this list, please chime in with their thoughts on how these
interactions can be implemented.

Have a great day!

- Jonathan.
