I guess that would work- it would just impose a slight delay on the 
popup of the quick-view window (equal to whatever the double-click 
timeout is).

But I'm not sure it's worth that much code to implement what is 
really a quite trivial feature- would anyone really object to simply 
removing the double-click behavior from the week view (and adding it 
to the pop-up window as "Go to Day" or the like)?  If people are 
attached to that feature, I'm inclined to just drop the quick view 
idea for now.
