10.7: Restore Tap-Drag

It appears that Lion got rid of the Tap-Drag function, where you tap your trackpad, release, tap again and hold to drag around items.

Fortunately, Apple just moved the setting to an obscure place in System Preferences. Just head to Universal Access » Mouse & Trackpad » Trackpad Options and enable 'Dragging (with/without) Drag Lock' (the second checkbox) to restore the old behavior.

[crarko adds: It also shows an iOS-like badge with the number of items that you are dragging.]
