[squeak-dev] Proposal: Morphs in Text

One big issue with the drag and drop is that it is often not clear which
morph one drop into.
There are so many layers of morphs in a text window so it gets confusing to
know which morph to actually
enable to accepting the drop.

But drag and drop are probably a separate issue from text anchors
constructed from
code. Just don't break it to badly  :-)
