Actually NS and IE 4.x had pretty good support for this kind of
interface, albeit via unpalatable DOM-0 method calls.

It's certainly much more reasonable than confining the vast majority of
our administrators to the clunky UI supported by browsers only a small
minority of our administrators use.
Note that you can support both, however, by making the list reordering
server-side. It's clunky, but it does provide the necessary
functionality. On the other hand, we could just make 'em use SQL.
