In IJ1 dropping a directory on the app frame can result in a image stack being opened. Notes from an older ticket:

IJ1's DND code checks if a given File is a directory and if it does it asks whether to open all files in dir as a stack. If no it opens each file in directory as a separate image. Maybe scifio can be extended to handle directories in this way? If not we can write code that does similar things. Currently our file list handling always opens them as separate images.
