This zimlet will display in the Zimlet panel. It registered to accept drag-n-drop items of types: appointment, contact, conversation and mail messages.

When items of those types are dropped on the panel item, the Zimlet Handler Object com_zimbra_paneldragsourceHandlerObject.prototype.doDrop(obj) is called. Then the handler can process the dropped obj.

    switch(type) {
        case "ZmAppt": {
            // do something with ZmAppt
        case "ZmContact": {
            // do something with ZmContact
