OK, I have a solution, which works fine for me, though it isn't necessarily 
generic. The mouseovers I need to preserve on a touch screen are all in my 
own code. So, all I have to do is add handlesMouseOverDragging:, 
mouseEnterDragging:, and mouseLeaveDragging: to the appropriate classes and 
have it just send the non-dragging messages to self. This is so simple it's 
a bit embarrassing. I've tried it, and it works!
