I don't understand. This is what I need to do to get a document to be
droppable onto an app:
OS X: I need to add entries to the CFBundleDocumentTypes
section of the info.plist file, noting the file's
extension and type code.
Win: I need to add an entry to the registry identifying
a given file extension with a given app.
Linux: Sadly varies unnecessarily between window managers,
but most require a MIME entry into a database.
By what other mechanisms can one associate a file type with an
application that can open it?
