Gforth DOES ask for full file system permissions.  Well, before Android 11, 
when asking for that permission always failed.  It also gets the different 
external files dir pathes, and tries to access them, in order from most 
permissive to least permissive, and takes what it gets.

I think I should add getExternalCacheDir to this list, as this cache is still 
world-read/write-able, and I hope that can solve this trouble.

Probably, with an intent-filter.  I'll check what's needed to handle this.  I 
think the actions should be VIEW, EDIT (when the editor is added) and RUN.
