Can you explain a bit more what functionality this patch adds? I have
always (as far back as have used Emacs, which is since 1997) been able
to open remote files just by dragging and dropping them into Emacs.
For example, I just dnd:d the file
"\\Gbgfs1\archive2004-1\Docman\Core\Docman 5.9.0\Docman\access.api"
into Emacs.

In CVS Emacs?

This used to work, because on Windows, we just blindly passed the filename to find-file. But in CVS Emacs, there is a new cross-platform drag and drop library, which prints "Remote files not supported" if a remote file is dragged onto Emacs. I only noticed this recently, and wrote this patch to fix it.
