Bug Description

It would be great if we could drag files out of GAJ.

Possible use cases:

Mark is bringing a slideshow presentation to work. He opens up GAJ, scrolls to the time he created it, and drags it to his flash drive.

Peter is talking to Paul via Empathy, and wants to share a file related to their project that he worked on earlier.
He opens GAJ, quickly finds the file among the ones he was working with at the time, and drags it to the chat window, initiating the transfer.

i've a doubt: if the file that i want to drag doesn't exists anymore what should GAJ have to do?
* show an error;
* nothing (fail silently)????

And what should GAJ have to do when the user drags folder(in case of bzr events) , webpage, chat conversations, or anything else different from a normal "file"(music, text, document, pdf, photos, ....)??
In case of folders, we can copy them...but in the others cases?

I forgot to mention that in case the file doesn't exists the SO shows an error...so should we let it show? or we have to stop the drag-action before???

Cando if the file does not exist it will not show up. But in case its
showing up we should fail silently.

Fx. when GAJ is open and we delete a file, GAJ is not updated istantly; so, if the user try do display the deleted file, an error is thrown.
In this case we fail silently...thanks seif!
