sounds like a good extension.

Should be "easy" to implement inside the KTextEditor library.

One just needs to add an extra element to the context menu for this that
then will trigger openUrl of the KTextEditor::Application if existing
to signal the application like Kate to open the file.

Are you interested in give such an extension a shot?
