What you describe is the "Bring to front" on the red-halo menu.
Am I missing a case that you're describing?

I see the black halo's purpose as for changing Morph ownership

Well, that was the primary _effect_ I want -- not a side-effect.
Sorry but that is not acceptable. For fine-tuning of the morph position, the
halo must be stable: just grabing the handle should not move the morph.
Think of it this way: you grab the morph via the halo handle, then decide
that eventually you do not want to move it: esay, you just release the
handle and that'is it. But if the morph has been moved immediately, how do
you get back to the initial position ?
Also, a morph may have a specific behavior depending on its precise
position, and it is then crucial to be able to change the position
As far as I am concerned, this change would completely break my code. I am
strongly opposed to it.
