Drag & Drop File/Folder on Rev Standalone Program Icon

One "general" solution would be to implement both.  A non-mac will not 
send the apple event, so handling that event will not have any effect 
on a non-mac.  Even if $1 is not available under Mac OS Classic, you 
can still implement it for the other platforms.

The only "tricky" case is that you can't rely on $1 being empty as 
indicating that no file was dropped on the icon.
