Add "Copy Link" button to File info

A very simple feature that seems to be missing from Joomla's default media manager, and the JCE File Browser, and FILEMan, is the ability to quickly copy the direct URL of an uploaded file. While experienced webmasters wouldn't need this feature, some clients who aren't as savvy find it frustrating when they want to email someone a direct link, and can see the file in the media browser, but don't know how to deduce the URL. There are convoluted methods that involve opening an article and using that file browser, or creating a menu item, but in the minds of a basic user, they want to open a file manager and click a button to quickly grab a link that they can share. In FILEMan, there is a "download" button in the file browser details, but it is not a direct link and required admin access. It would be great if this was replaced by or supplemented by a "copy file path" button.
