And it could be possible.

What Chrome gives, when I paste a file is DataTransfer (a.k.a. ClipboardData) object with an empty "files" property, but with 2 "items": first with a filename and the second with a file. It means it is possible to get a file from the second "item", on paste.

Unfortunately, when the upload plugin was implemented there was only one item on Chrome and only the first item is handled (see If this line will be replaced with a loop it should be possible to get the file.

Note that on Windows pasted file is not available at all.

Also, note that now you do not need try-catch block there since items have a "kind" property which let you check if it is a file or a string.
