Hey Matt,

There are certain limitations in the current jQuery sortable extension
which could make the expand/collapse event a bit unstable and sluggish
because of the shared onclick event.

Yeah, I am aware of those. Adding custom helper and placeholder
classnames to target li items could probably make it smoother.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
