I write a lot of applications that process data files, and my 
standard way of introducing the file (or a batch of files) to the 
application is to drag the file's icon to the application's icon in 
the dock or in the finder.  It would be great to also be able to drag 
the file's icon into the application's window, but I've not a clue 
how to do this. I've seen programs that do it, and Rich alludes to it 
above - does anybody have any suggestions?
