[texworks] Mac OS X version lacks support for proxy-icon dragging

Probably this is a framework issue.

Anyway, in Mac OS X, when a document titlebar has an icon in it, that  
icon can be clicked and dragged to manipulate the file, typically to  
drag it to an app icon in the dock --- I use this as part of my TeX  
workflow where I'll typeset a file, then drag the proxy icon for the  
typeset .pdf to Adobe Illustrator to open the file there and check  
sizes and dimensions.

It would be nice if this feature could be added to the framework or  
where ever would be appropriate.
