[plt-scheme] How to open a source file in an already running DrScheme?

I think this is part of the program; when you open Office documents, for
example, it recognizes that a process is already running. I'm only guessing,
but that's probably what it does on the Mac. I know many programs that do
that on Windows, so I don't think it would be too hard to implement - and it
is quite an annoying wait. I never open files by double-clicking them
because of that - is there anything you could do about it, maybe for v300?
