Cool.  Please send your patch to address@hidden so people can give you
feedback (as you might have noticed, there is a fair bit of convention in
the C code, and since you're not familiar with it, you probably missed some
of it).

Rather than hard-code `find-file', you should make it customizable
in elisp.  Maybe it's worthwhile to look at how drag&drop is handled in the
W32 part of the code.  The two should hopefully provide a similar
functionality to elisp so that the rest of the code can be the same for
all OSes.
