+1 for this feature from me too! I've also put a request in the request section.

I reckon that a feature like this could be useful; however, I disagree with the fact that the mouse is the only way to use it. When coding you should keep your hands always on the keyboard, so why not make it a key combination similar to the "move line up/down" or "indent/unindent".

That key combination already exists, ctrl+shift+up/down.

Sometimes using the mouse makes sense. Just as sometimes not using the mouse makes sense. I just want the option either way.

I just noticed something that doesn't work.

If I click and drag some text, I am no longer able to use my mouse wheel to scroll down the page to where I want to drop the text.

A little annoying if I have something saved in my clipboard that I want to copy and paste in addition to this long drag and drop.

That's just the current behaviour sorry. Jon has never got round to changing that.
