The Delayed Encoding example in Qt's examples directory will send the image
data in a drag and drop operation. There's also a hidden example in the
doc/src/snippets/separations directory that does a similar thing.
I think the reason why many applications don't send image data directly is
that it can involve a lot of data. The Delayed Encoding example still sends
the image data, but it only generates it when the drag and drop operation is
complete and the application has committed to sending it.
