FAQ extends DataObject

Each FAQ can belong to a number of different pages on the site.
For each page, I need to give the user the ability to sort the FAQ's. So when they are displayed in a template, they will be sorted via a Sort field, not alphabetically ('Why are...','Why is...')

I was hoping to do this through Drag and Drop interface instead of Dropdowns. Does anyone have suggestions on how to accomplish this?

We've done this in the past to have products in multiple product groups, and use the CMS interface to manage the order of products in each group.

I'll see if I can get someone to dig up some code.

I'm bouncing this to the top to see if anyone's had any success in getting this to work. I'd certainly be interested for a current project!

Thanks!
