No, NSTokenField handles drag'n'drop itself and does not provide any
easy way to augment or replace that behavior.

I already subclass NSTokenField and I believe I've googled and read
everything related to NSTokenField. It took far to long before I gave up
And speaking of ways to change the behavior of NSTokenField/NSTextField,
I would love being able to customize the view used for the list of

when it was last used, but I cannot do that either (without
re-implementing everything myself).
