10.5: Use Finder sidebar items as proxy icons Desktop
In all OS X incarnations prior to Leopard, the Finder Sidebar items could only be removed or reordered. Attempting to use them as proxy icons only resulted in them poofing to oblivion. No more in Mac OS X v. 10.5!

Option-Drag on a Finder Sidebar item to copy it, and Command-Option-Drag it to create an alias. This works for the desktop, other Finder windows, and other Finder Sidebar items. You can't, however, Command-Drag to move Finder Sidebar items to a new location...yet?
