Android: Support the Storage Access Framework

If I’m not mistaken the Android api provides a generic framework for accessing files in various external providers such as the much requested Google Drive.

Personally, I have a remote folder mounted through another app into this framework that I have been using for markdown notes for years. I currently use a very simple (maybe too simple) text editor app to edit these files but I think Obsidian would provide a much better experience.

The current workflow is to use a timer based sync app like FolderSync and I understand that this can provide some benefits but I think there could also be options that provide some seamless access to external markdown files without having to write code for a bunch of independent providers.

I would also love to see this! It would work well with Nextcloud, too.
