Bug Description

When the Dash opens, all Launcher icons other than the currently selected Lens should desaturate.

As soon as a user starts dragging a item from the Dash, the Dash will close. The Launcher will stay open.
- If a application icon is being dragged, all the Launcher icons will return to full normal colour saturation.
- If a file icon is being dragged, the Launcher icons that are valid drop receptacles will regain their normal colour saturation.
- If a folder icon is being dragged, all the Launcher icons will return to full normal colour saturation.

This is a temporary stop-gap measure for Natty due to technical limitations. It is understood that this transition will feel very abrupt. The desired interaction for Oneiric is that the Dash should only close when the user *drops* the icon.
