People using mc should not worry about drag and drop. They should use
"Menu(F9)>Commands>Edit extensions file" and friends and add
gimp-remote as handler for extensions you want.
If I am not wrong that is the mail reason gimp-remote was developed.
If I continue about MC, I am afraid it will be offtopic.
