There's a variable `w3m-content-type-alist' which by default includes
the entries:

 ("text/plain" "\\.\\(?:txt\\|tex\\|el\\)\\'" nil nil)
 ("text/html" "\\.s?html?\\'" w3m-goto-url-new-session nil)
 ("text/sgml" "\\.sgml?\\'" nil "text/plain")

You can change the entry for "text/plain" to perform action
w3m-goto-url-new-session, and that should do it.
