It could be a seperate program, but they want to see both a file-list and a document at the same time.

Well, they could always just run nautilus in single click mode, so that
documents will open in evince (or whatever) with a single click.  Seeing
the file list and the documents at the same time should then just be a
case of adjusting the nautilus and viewer app window sizes and positions
the first time they're opened, so you can view them side-by-side...
after that their positions should be remembered.  (Although
unfortunately GNOME isn't very good at the remembering part right now.)

I could use a script what kills an excisting Abiword and opens the document readonly in Abiword. Maybe with some X-commands to put Abiword on some place on the screen.

Because the customer is using OpenOffice, I could make Abiword really basic. I could do something for PDFs too.

A bad hack, but less work as making an application...

I would really like it more to do something in Nautilus. Is it still possible to use plugins in Nautilus? If yes, where can I find the specs how to make a Nautilus plugin?
