But do we not already have that feature?? 

In Gnome when I open File Browser and R-click an image and select copy I
get the file name (without file://) and that can be pasted (R-click or
Ctrl-V) into the file name field on the Get Image dialogue and it works.

Granted if it comes with file:/// at the start it breaks!  But you only
need to delete file:// manually... 

Perhaps this only works in Gnome?
