Bug Description

Follow-up to
Bug #738973 “Issues with inkscape-quartz blueprint”

Related branch:
<https://code.launchpad.net/~inkscape.dev/inkscape/dev-osx>

Related upstream module:
<https://live.gnome.org/GTK+/OSX/Integration>

OS X application bundles with a script-based app launcher don't support desktop integration like DnD of files onto Dock and Finder icon, or opening files via 'Open with…' (see also <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=675875#c3>).

I recently discussed this briefly on irc with parafin (darktable developer, osx packaging) - and he now notified me about recent commits which add this support based on gtkosxapplication. Likely this could be added to Inkscape's main binary in a similar way:

Implement some OS X integration (no dock D'n'D or "open with" yet):
   quit from menu, attention request on export finish
<https://github.com/darktable-org/darktable/commit/16b63ec9712318fb6de1c8d853bd6e43bf81fd60>

OS X integration: support "open with" and dropping files/directories …
<https://github.com/darktable-org/darktable/commit/365ab4f4983118923370a61701d05cf455531a01>
