  This libray should already exist since the code that is calling it is 
in pd.tk (proc open_file ), if you install the tkdnd library you will be 
able to drag and drop patch files. I don't know how to install it on 
osx, in windows it's in pd/lib/tk in linux it's in /usr/local/lib/tk 
while pd is in /usr/local/lib.
  You could make a GUI fork of openpanel that outputs the file path 
dragged into it?
  I use the ix library that require toxy/widget, but it would be cool to 
have a single external for this.
