This is not as likely to be useful though. Opening a file in gedit isn't
hard atm. Getting the filename of it is useful, and at the moment not
that easy. Also, the file may contain binary.
Anyway, exactly what to do would be up to gedit in this situation, but
nautilus should offer both a text-uri target and a text target. Pasting
the file contents is not expected in e.g. gnome-terminal, while the
pathname is useful.
