Drag and drop materials

Keeping in line with the 'everything is visual' motivation of the editor, I have added the ability to drag and drop materials from the resource browser onto the 3D scene. The materials themselves offer a live preview in the resource browser while the mouse is over it. As it is dragged into the scene, cursor feedback shows when the material can be dropped and when it cannot. I may add the ability to actually live preview it in the scene as well, applying it to the current object that is under the cursor.
