Middle-clicking files

A though came to my mind just now - the method of copying text around by just selecting it to copy and using middle-click to paste it. So I wonder, why could one not apply the same for file operations in Nautilus? I would love to just select and middle click to copy files and maybe a Ctrl or Alt key could be used at the paste stage to switch to moving files instead of copying.

Got access to a new, more powerful server, moved my blog from Mnemosyne to Wordpress, hopefully did not flood p.d.o, did not move the comments over yet.
