[Gtk-sharp-list] 'drag-before-end' signal?

I'm trying to fix a bug in Banshee and after looking extensively at
this[1] and doing some tests, I think that I need a signal that doesn't
exist yet in Gtk+, but I'm not sure, so can anyone please confirm I am

What I need is a signal that happens:
- In the scenario in which drag-n-drop happens from a Gtk# widget to
- After "drag-data-get" happens on the source widget.
- Before the "drag-end" signal happens (before the MOVE|COPY operation
is sent to Nautilus).

What I seem to need is a kind of "drag-data-received" signal, but in the
source widget instead of the target widget.

If I am correct and Gtk+ doesn't support it, I'm considering trying to
hack an addition in Gtk+. In this case, what name would you advocate?:

- "drag-before-end"?
- "drag-before-send"?
- "drag-data-sent"?

Thanks in advance for any comments,
