Dropping upload files into the browser window is a very nice feature. But can we restrict the "active drop-zone" i.e. where file can be dropped to a smaller box e.g. the "drop file here" box?

The file drop shall be active only when moving the mouse over this drop-zone. This will avoid that user are confuse by the drag&drop feature when moving arbitrary file over the browser window. They may not have the intention to actually drag&drop files in TRAC.
