   * The actual effect that will be used, and should always be one of the

   *
   * For dragstart, drag and dragleave events, the dropEffect is initialized
   * to none. Any value assigned to the dropEffect will be set, but the value
   * isn't used for anything.
   *
   * For the dragenter and dragover events, the dropEffect will be initialized
   * based on what action the user is requesting. How this is determined is
   * platform specific, but typically the user can press modifier keys to
   * adjust which action is desired. Within an event handler for the dragenter
   * and dragover events, the dropEffect should be modified if the action the
   * user is requesting is not the one that is desired.
   *
   * For the drop and dragend events, the dropEffect will be initialized to
   * the action that was desired, which will be the value that the dropEffect
   * had after the last dragenter or dragover event.
   *
   * Possible values:
   *  copy - a copy of the source item is made at the new location
   *  move - an item is moved to a new location
   *  link - a link is established to the source at the new location
   *  none - the item may not be dropped
   *
   * Assigning any other value has no effect and retains the old value.
