Unfortunately I don't understand most of these things myself in a detailed
enough way to write about them (except drag and drop, which works on everything
I have tried it on, and the file chooser, which I don't like to write about
because I think the best advice is to avoid it and use drag-and-drop from 
some sort of browser).  But if anybody cares to provide any *specific*
facts about these things that would be useful for users to know, I'll
undertake to get them into the User Manual (in English, of course).  I
don't need brilliant prose -- sketchy notes are fine, as long as I can
understand them.  

In any case I'll write something about the File Chooser.  I understand
bookmarks, Ctrl-L, and how to use the file type list.  If there are
more features that should be explained, please let me know about them.

(We actually do a pretty good job of explaining most things in 
Preferences, I think.)
