Summit has a javascript drag-n-drop thing[0].
/<summit>/<date>/display?edit is available to those with scheduler
permissions. It is a one-day-at-a-time scheduling interface. I played
with it briefly and found it buggy and glitchy in my local summit
instance. I don't know if anyone tried it on the live site. If that kind
of thing is wanted, it already exists. Might just need some small(?)

Personally, I would find it cumbersome even if it can be made to work
properly. But, I am not a scheduler and generally avoid mice as much as
I can, so maybe it would be fine for those doing this work.
