Applications that want to receive drops from Netscape need
special handling since Netscape won't be using the MIME
types that GNOME normally uses. (You need to accept
drops of type _NETSCAPE_URL)

For an example of taking URL drops from netscape you can 
look at the sources for ee. (main.c) If you look at 
this, you'll notice that there is problem - Netscape
doesn't actually doesn't actually download the file
for you; you are responsible for getting it yourself.

ee "solves" this forking off a wget to get the file.
You could use gnome-http, but that wouldn't handle
ftp:// URLs. Hopefully, we'll have a VFS in the future that
makes this all easy to handle.
