In the same way one can open sql files by drag and drop it from explorer to the program, it'd be nice to open sql files inside a folder by drag and drop it too.

So if I have a folder "folderWithSqls" and inside of it I have three sql files "1.sql", "2.sql" and "3.sql", the idea is not to drag and drop those three files separatedly but drag and drop the folder and then the program would read the sql files inside of it and then open them in the sql editor.

The use case (for me) is when doing some version migration, so I have many folders like: "2.6-2.6.9" or "2.6.9-2.9", inside of them I can have sqls or maybe folders with sql inside.

If the sql opening could be recursive would be very very nice, but if the program can only open the direct children files it'd good enough as I would be saving many time by opening the files individually.

By the way: very very nice app for db managing. I use it all the time. Thanks for such a great app!!
