Smarter behavior when dropping files on Tiled #1031

Currently, there's two things that can happen when dropping files on Tiled:

  • When you drop them on the Tilesets view, it will open the New Tileset dialog so you can add them as a tileset (the assumption is that you're dropping images).
  • When you drop files anywhere else, Tiled will try to open the files as maps (even if you're dropping images).

It would be smarter to detect whether the dropped files are maps or images (or external tilesets...), and treat them accordingly by either adding them as tilesets or opening them as maps.

Where it gets a little strange is when the user is dropping files from different categories at the same time... I'm not sure exactly what to do then.

Allow adding external tilesets by dragging to the Tilesets dock
For now you can no longer add image-based tilesets this way, since users
are encouraged to set up external tileset files instead. Maybe that can
be restored later in some way, depending on the feedback.
