Press-and-hold to rearrange lists 2

Many applications provide a list-view of information that you are able to scroll through to find the specific item you need, such as the Bookmark view in the browser or your list of podcasts on DrPodder. Deleting from those lists is as easy as swiping the item off the screen, but you can also rearrange the items by using a press-and-hold technique, similar to reordering your email accounts or moving your launcher icons.

Simply press-and-hold on the list item you want to move, and once that box becomes a darker grey (the PreCentral podcast in the screenshot), just drag it to the position you want it and let go.

is it just me or does rearranging the just type lists not work well? You can move items around, but after a second they reappear in a different part of the list. Very strange, and annoying, of a bug.

Can you only re-order each just-type item or can you re-order entire groups? By default, the actions are below the searches. I'd like to re-order that but couldn't.

Also, its too bad they took away the ability to re-order notifications in 2.x.
