Enhancement request: Dragging a shortcut file into Calibre should add target file

Bug Description

I installed a program. It put a shortcut (.lnk) to a PDF manual on my start menu. I dragged the shortcut into Calibre, expecting it to add the PDF. Instead, it added the lnk file itself.

I understand why it happened, but seeing as shortcuts are a bit of a special case I suggest that Calibre somehow be able to handle that.

(Unless it's already intended to do that, in which case this is actually a bug report.)

Thank you.

This is not worth the effort for me personally. If some one else wants to implement it, I will be happy to supply any needed guidance. If so, re-open the ticket and we can discuss it.
