I guess I'll have to dive into the Qt source code then, because they
do it! In Qt you register the mime types your are interested in, say
which widget accepts drops and hook the mime type list onto that.

Funny that, it seems X11 (of all things) has a much better and well
thought out DND protocol that Windows. And who says Linux doesn't have
standards! :-)
