<AWT Dev> RFE: new function in Desktop class

Hi. I'm using Desktop.open to open the default file explorer, by doing
File.getParent() and opening that.

However i'd like the file(s) that interest me to open selected in the file
explorer, but as the open function is overloaded there doesn't seem to be a
way to do that?

I'm proposing to separate the file explorer part into a separate function
call that can be called with a normal file, not only directories, so that
the files can appear selected and visible, like any decent file explorer

Can't think of a good name for the function since browse is already taken.
