Just downloaded this and it is great. But it lacks one feature I can 
not do without, drag and drop of files to be edited.

It is funny, when I am in a terminal window, I see nothing wrong with 
typing a path to emacs (either in the command line or at ^x^f). But 
when I am working in teh Aqua/Finder side of things it just seems 
utterly anathema.

I would guess it should possible to write a little desktop 
applescript that you could drop files onto which would then send the 
appropriate commands to emacs to open the files via the 
applescript/unix integration, but I have not had time to look at such 

Anyone want to volunteer to put such together, or have a better idea?
