There was not a real conclusion, but several related things with some 
opinions (from memory):

- move default columns to backend_layout: no objections as the code for 
the default columns can be removed

- backend_layouts also in TS config: different opinions; some in favour, 
some against; I wouldn't spend time on this at the moment

- default backend_layout in TS config or hardcoded: also different 
opinions; if it's hardcoded it's still not a real problem, because 
anybody can make a backend_layout to replace the default.

Maybe the easiest and fastest way is:

1. remove default columns, use default (hardcoded) backend_layout and 
introduce drag'n'drop
2. optionally move hardcoded default layout to TS config
3. backend_layout also in TS config

Ad 1: seems there are no objections and patch can be reviewed and merged 
without too much discussion about functionality
Ad 2: probably some discussion, but it doesn't block drag'n'drop 
functionality anymore
Ad 3: unsure if there is enough support for it, but doesn't block either 
1 or 2.

Is this something that can work for you?
