Mavericks - Adding apps to the Finder Toolbar System
Looks like Mavericks 10.9 has changed the behavior for adding application/document shortcuts to the Finder toolbar.

Where before you could simply drag any icon up to the Finder toolbar and hold it there for a second to add it, you now need to first hold down Option+Command and then start dragging the desired icon to the toolbar.

You can still remove the icons the same way as before: holding down Command, dragging the icon away from the toolbar and then releasing.

It's just command-drag (command-option not necessary).

Good one. I initially thought they had removed that feature.

It seems to also work with only the cmd key (to add).

Command to drag in and option to drag out.

only command is necessary, not command-option.

Also it looks like you have to have the command key held down *before* you start dragging.

Yeah, mine does it with just the command key.
