Well, there's not another way to drag an object, but that doesn't seem
to be the problem in the first place. You're wanting to know if
there's an easier way to specify the data that should be transferred
whenever the user drags an object from one place to another, right?
Have you considered using YAML to serialize (and deserialize) the
objects? If you were to do that, it seems like you wouldn't need to
write class-specific to_str() and from_str() methods.
