you're right, the plugin itself is well working and easy to implement, 
so actually no real need for a native thingy.

in general, i think that those little helpers (drag and drop features 
etc.) would lower the bar for new people to dive into the great PD 
world. a little convenience in the workflow doesn't hurt.

but i wanted to ask you anyway, if a slight modification of your code to 
provide such a thing (dropping a soundfile onto a PD window and have 
it's name output somewhere) would be a big deal or not.

i guess not, but i know i can't do it. at least not easily ;-)
