Someone did some work on that, it would require tkdnd.  I think  
Miller already the patch in u_main.tk, but you need to have tkdnd  
installed to make it work.   I think it would be great to have a a  
number of these very handy Tcl/Tk extensions included in Pd- 
extended.  That's originally why I set up the 'extensions' section in  
CVS.  Want to take that on?

As we enjoy great advantages from inventions of others, we should be  
glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and  
this we should do freely and generously.         - Benjamin Franklin
