drag and drop featured image

    How about a drag and drop to upload/assign featured images!

    Why? Clicking on "Set featured image" takes time to:

    * open the media library
    * wait for all thumbnails in library pop up to load, which can take a while if your default thumbnail size is bigger than 100x
    * drag-n-drop, then wait and do nothing while uploading
    * manually click "assign"

    Would make more sense to drag-n-drop your feature image in the "Featured Image" metabox, continue on editing page attributes or modifying the content, all the while your feature image is being uploaded with a progress bar.

    Assigning feature images, especially with larger images on larger sites where you're adding 20-30 pages in a day is very interruptive, it stalls all progress in an otherwise easy-flow.

    Being worked on. They're getting drag&drop areas a little better.
