Possible usability addition to mc quickview panel

Dear MC developers,

I use MC a lot during my work. I thought of a possible usability addition that would improve my work flow significantly.

I often browse through older archives and directories in which case I use the quickview-panel to inspect the content. During this I find myself repeatedly entering and leaving the archives/directories to browse to the README file to inspect it.

It would be a great addition if I could add a "custom command view panel" which calls upon an external program to generate output to display in the viewer panel. I could than write a simple bash script that outputs the content of the README

I have inspected the mc source code and it seems like a relative simple addition because the whole framework of calling external programs based on file-magic is already there.

Many thanks for your kind consideration and the great program that you produce,
