Have a user-definable 'Open With...' in the items view

Most of my files are text files, although they have various file extensions (sql, txt, src, srd, etc). Each time I right-click to open it, I have to go to Open With... and select my text editor. It would be nice to be able to define a default 'open with' application.

        If you have a script, you want to run it in windows but edit it in Plastic. That's why you need to be able to override the default system behaviour.

        What I miss too is the possibility to drag the file and drop it to an editor to open it. That would do the job for me at least partially.

        I don't know Tom's opinion, but for me, it would be great to have more options. Sometimes I want to use different editor than the default one. For example, there is one program, which I use as a viewer/browser (Windows Photo Viewer) and another one for editing (Photoshop). Or I want to see a binary file in an Hex editor...
