I think operation double click on icon in file browser is a good
analogue to operation via context menu.

Double click opens an icon.
I think by default, context menu should provide a way to open a
thing under mouse pointer.

What is appropriate open, isn’t obvious.

| thing     | open          |
| file      | file-file     |
| directory | dired         |
| url       | browse-url    |
| function  | describe-help |
