Completely agree. GIMP need not worry too much about this. If you
still want a place to DND in this situation, you can always write a
simple but separate app that gives just a DND basket like d4x or kget
gives. For whatever is dropped on it, you can always call gimp's
remote.  Heck! you can even make it intelligent and open the app you
want based on different criteria! But that is enough said on GIMP's
list. :-)
