Of course the app should display a preview if it can. The question is
what should the preview frame show when a folder is selected or a
device node or simply a file that it cannot generate a preview for?
IMO it would be nice to be able to use the icons provided by the file
system backend. Perhaps not as large as Mitch's mockup shows it, but
still, there should be some way to get the icon.
