Let dragging work in IE10 via touch interface. — at Initial Version

In testing on the Microsoft Surface RT tablet, meta boxes were completely undraggable. Whether they be dashboard boxes, widgets, or menu items.

As per http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh767313.aspx and https://msmvps.com/blogs/theproblemsolver/archive/2012/10/24/jquery-ui-and-windows-8-and-internet-explorer-10-touch-screens.aspx this can be solved quite simply by adding the -ms-touch-action: none; property to the CSS of the elements in question.

If someone would prefer to do it via Javascript, it can be done via

if (typeof el.style.msTouchAction != 'undefined') el.style.msTouchAction = "none";

but I'm happy just doing it via CSS for the moment.
