Welcome to Xcode

There’s a small unimportant thing has been nagging me since the first betas of Xcode 6 when they removed the title bar of the Welcome to Xcode window. I recognized it as nitpicky, so I didn’t complain. But it’s been long enough now that I decided I should.

Summary:
The Welcome to Xcode window can be dragged around by clicking in the
window content. But clicking on the big icon above the Welcome to
Xcode message, or anywhere inside of the icon's rectangle, will do
nothing.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Xcode.
2. If the Welcome to Xcode window is not visible, choose
   Window > Welcome to Xcode.
3. Try dragging the window by clicking the icon, or in a white area
   around the icon but still inside of the icon's rect.

Expected Results:
The window should move.

Actual Results:
The window does not move; nothing happens.

Version:
Xcode 7.0 beta 5 (7A176x)
OS X 10.10.4

Notes:
Suggestion: use a subclass of NSImageView with this overridden
method:

- (BOOL)mouseDownCanMoveWindow {
    return YES;
}

That is now bug 22259311. Now I wait.
