After a pretty intensive lunch break, I think an answer might be close. If
anybody woudln't mind giving it a poke, I put a copy of the test case up at:
(only referring to the second problem)

When explicit, it temporarily binds the dragging element to the body, and
the following changes to Position.cumulativeOffset take in to account the
position of any parent Divs of the dragging element.

cumulativeOffset: function(element) {
var valueT = 0, valueL = 0;

// These three lines
var offset = this.realOffset(element);
valueT -= offset[1];
valueL -= offset[0];

do {
valueT += element.offsetTop || 0;
valueL += element.offsetLeft || 0;
element = element.offsetParent;
} while (element);
return [valueL, valueT];

It still breaks in Safari, and there's a bit of flicker when starting and
stopping a drag, but those both can be tweaked. Let me know how it works for
