Sidebar tree improvement: allow drag and drop moves

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
The sidebar is great, but a more folder- or tree-like experience might make it even better.

Describe the solution you’d like
Allow an object to be dragged and dropped in the side bar from one parent object to another to make it feel more like moving files between folders. A move could trigger all links to the object that is moved to be updated to reflect its new parent. This would probably break in the case of circular references though…

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

  1. Create a new “folder” object type that does have a section of its canvas that cannot be manually edited and only lists links to its parent folder, child folders, and objects that are direct children. These folder type objects could be shown either under the “favorites” entry in the sidebar, or as a separate group of objects in the sidebar next to “favorites”, “history”, etc., called something like “Folder”, “Explorer”, or “Navigation”. A location of a folder or an object in the tree could be as simple as 1:1 parent-child relation to a folder object to ensure a folder or object can only show up under one other folder.
