This can be a tedious process. It would be cool if you could drag multiple
widgets with CTRL - CLICK to a widgetized area. Or even if all widgets had a
checkbox, and the widgetized area had a button along the lines of "add all
checked widgets here".

Similar process for removing the widgets. Or button like "Remove all

Just some thoughts.
