Drag filenames into Terminal

Rather than typing a big ol’ messy path/filename into Terminal, try just dragging a file from the desktop or Tracker onto a Terminal window — its name will be written at the insertion point. Of course this is only handy if the file in question is already visible (which is drag-and-drop’s biggest problem in general), but it makes for a cool example of BMessages in action.
