Open files in any running app via Deskbar

In BeOS 5, you can drag any file on top of the entry for any currently running app in the Deskbar, and that app will attempt to open it. This is a bit similar to right-clicking the file and choosing Open With… but some people may find it easier or more intuitive.
For example, let’s say you want to view the contents of a SoundPlay playlist quickly, without launching SoundPlay or a text editor. Just drag it onto NetPositive’s entry in the Deskbar and the playlist will open in NetPositive.
