I absolutely agree. An homogeneous file [pre]viewer is a good thing.
I hope this feature could be simply extended to other printable/viewable
files, as gnumeric or abiword.
For example: currently gedit uses Print Preview, so we'll could simply
make a "pipe" to pass it through the "Print Preview", generate a temp
ps, send the ps to "Nautilus Preview".
BTW: I hope the "Print Preview" and this generic previewer could be
share at least the interface.
