Yes, that's true although what I meant to say is that when moving is the
default behaviour on the same filesystem, this can be deceiving. Moving,
copying and 'shortcutting' are all decided depending on the individual
circumstance (filesystem, object type, widget being dragged to/from). It is
hard to keep track of what action is taken when, especially if you are a new
user. KDE is more verbose and I suspect there is no way of disabling this

I guess it's half way towards complete automation. I still feel comfortable
with CTRL+C/V/X, which works in all environments.
