Often I use fgrep or find to discover source code filenames (and paths) that are relevant to my code development purposes.

I use the 'working sets' feature of Eclipse a lot, to reduce the 'surface area' (i.e. number of exposed files and directories) of my current project.

Sometimes I discover new files that should be added to the working set.
It's labourious to wade through the hierachical tree structure to drill down to the relevant file to set the checkbox for it to 'yes, include' especially since I have the long pathname and filename in my paste buffer.

A 'long pathname' could have 6 or more directory levels to drill down into.

I would like to be able to drag-drop filenames into the 'Working Set File Selector'
