That is a good idea. I usually use gqview to find the 1st file I want
to edit, then Ctrl-1 - being very unmousy, I never thought to
drag-n-drop. I'm using fluxbox, so I'm sure I can get it set up to
work for me. Thanks! And for the gr tip too.

I wonder; are we witnessing the coming-of-age of a new generation of
programmers who grew up *not* using the shell, and who therefore
overlook the importance of shell-like features in the GUI?
