It would be nice to use drag&drop Layers between different instances of qgis. When I have a layer with a style in some old project and I would like to use the same layer in another project, i need to do the following.

In the old project: look up the source, save the style

In the new (existing) project: open the source, load the style

It would be cool to have this via drag and drop.

Hello, bug triage...

whenever I try this, I can drag'n drop the layer from one qgis instance to another. But as soon as I try to show the layer, QGIS segfaults on QGIS 2.13 master !
