Apps and scripts as Tracker add-ons

Description

Here's a patch to allow BApplications to be used as if they were Tracker add-ons, allowing you to have a Command-Option shortcut for a favorite application on a selection of supported files.

The patch probably needs some more work.

It would be nice if one could also use shell scripts as Tracker add-ons.

So this sends a B_REFS_RECEIVED message to that application when launching? It seems like it could indeed be useful, and could of course remove the need for that shared process_refs code you were working on last week.

I don't have time now but I'll try this out soon and let you know what I think.

Milestone: R1Unscheduled

Moving Tracker enhancement tickets out of R1 milestone -- Tracker's source code comes from BeOS R5, so it already has all the features it did on R5.
