should we have move and connect modes; so when you drag a pattern, it can either move or it can connect? (by default connect)?

      Being able to move things around on the canvas would be helpful. I've had several instances where I wanted to move nodes around to make the diagram look better and ended up doing a delete & add to make it work. It was frustrating and clumsy.

      Eric: note that there's a layout button on the toolbar and the context menu to lay things out a little neater. Though I agree we should support moving.

      I wonder if you click and hold for a little while, the border could change into 'move mode'?

      Either that or we should have a Connect and Move mode in the top icons in the palette - with connect being the default?

      I wonder if we added the 'connect' icon back to the top of the Palette; then have it selected by default (rather than the usual pointer).

      Then by default things work as they are right now. If the user selects the "pointer' then dragging a node moves it; when they switch back to the 'Connect' icon then dragging a pattern connects it again?

      I wonder if we can get the ConnectionDragCreationTool to also work as a SelectionTool. i.e. so single click also selects the current pattern?

      just added a SelectAndConnectionDragCreationTool so that we can drag to connect and still single click to select while in connect mode
