Keep widget areas in view as you scroll

I don't know if this idea has already been thought of but I think it would be extremely helpful (especially for touchpad computers) if the widget areas always stayed in view as you scrolled through the widgets.

There might not be enough space to keep them in view, as they might be too high. But I think you are talking about issues when trying to drag/drop some widgets to the area. As you can add a widget with a click on the "Add Widget" button (once you clicked on the widget), I think this is a good solution anyways.

@Kau-Boy: You are right. I don't think there is enough room to add something like this. Also there is accessibility mode which solves the problem of dragging widgets.

I still think it is a very good idea and should be reopened. When scrolling down through widgets, areas at the right side could be always visible for quick overview. Also it would be VERY helpfull for Inactive widgets, I found very annoying to drag them back to the top through long page...
