For more consistent behavior with other apps on macOS, you can
let the system parse the selected text to get (possibly multiple)
filenames.  Just inspect the service pasteboard with
NSFilenamesPboardType instead of NSStringPboardType.
Alternatively, creating NSURL objects for pasteboard items would
also work.  (I'm not sure if this works on GNUstep.)
