The Trello interaction with cards seems mostly better than ours:
- Click the card to edit.
- Click-and-drag to move.
I think we can probably do something similar.
A distinction is that we have a meaningful link target (the task detail page) while Trello does not, but there are various ways we could try to retain that functionality while making it easier to edit tasks. This also reclaims a lot of space currently dedicated to pencil icons.
