This occured to me too, after reading your post :)

I use a small hack that uses `file-cache', which works great for me as
I most of the time want a file from a static list of files. It never
occured to me that I could use this from other apps. I am using
the great PowerPro utility under Windows and I am sure I can use that
to paste the path to any app I want.

Thanks for the idea! I will check your "experimental" code.
