Preventing accidental file drag in Solution Explorer

I and many developers I know have suffered dragging files accidently, from one location to other in the Visual Studio Solution Explorer.

If the solution is in a source control and not checked out, VS prompts to check out (if configured to do that) but in any other case the situation can get very frustrating.

It would be great to have a confirmation prompt when the user drags a file from one location to another in the solution explorer.

I have heard of a way to completely block drag and drop functionality using a VS extension.
But it sounds like a workaround as drag and drop is very handy while solution restructuring / re-factoring.
