Disabling drag & drop editing?

Is it possible to disable drag & drop in the editor? Using a laptop, I quite often tap & drag on the touchpad to select text, only to find that I've dragged a chunk of text to a new position instead, which is really annoying! I have it disabled in other applications, but can't find a way to do it in Calibre...

If you find yourself doing lots of inadvertent drags you probably need to increase the tap to drag threshold in your touchpad driver.

In other words, there isn't any way to disable it?

In that case, can I put this forward as a feature request for some future version? I never use d&d for editing text, and my touchpad's sensitivity seems to vary depending on temperature and humidity and the phase of the moon or whatever. (It's a horrible new Dell one which doesn't even have proper buttons -- or rather, the whole surface is a big button. Very weird.)
