Dragging a file from outside of the application is not different than internal
drag&drop. Just setup the widget to accept drops and accept data with MIME type
"text/uri-list" in the handler. Probably the easiest way is to use methods
hasUrls and urls. QMimeData::urls returns a list of QUrl instances, use
toLocalFile to convert the URL to a local file name.
