What features should we add to Corona?

getContentResolver().openInputStream(uri) to get content stream to file in android

Implement the ability to access to the

getContentResolver().openInputStream(uri) function at Android.

This is to create a file with an stream. Many apps uses the contentProvider and send an URI similar to:

content://com.google.android.apps.docs.storage.legacy/enc=Gq8T6z85JlXgQW8eI1KQNgZccktDINxa2ejLY80P_cuXdpvt

Need some way to resolver this, and allow share files in this way in android. Not really share, but, read, and receive.

For example: send a file by email, and open with our app.

If the email app uses the content:// format for the stream, need a way to get the file.

Any chance?
