Allow for shortcuts to files (and content-elements?)
Currently a page of type "Shortcut" can only link to a page. It would be great to allow linking to files as well. You might have used "External URL" for that in the past (hardcoding the URL in the links then) but with FAL we'll need to find a different solution imho.
And maybe linking to content-elements might also work in this context? Linking to a page and directly jumping to the respective anchor.

Since features like "random subpage" won't work on files (or content-elements) imho we could simply create a new type of shortcut (in the type-dropdown) and add those two cases there. The shortcut would then instead of a page-id point to a "file-id" (FAL) or a content-ID (tt_content).
We'll need to have matching popups to select the content then. (Those functions are already there.)

This can be realize by this extension http://typo3.org/extensions/repository/view/ts_page_file_shortcut
even on TYPO3 6.1, but without FAL support,
btw it would be nice to have this feature in the core.
