Showing them always in the same separate "Preview Window" would solve this
problem. (This is Jeff's preview application idea). Of course, it could give
other problems, and I can't think of any previous example of this.

I think the idea is that it would be separate from the file view, and would
not cause people to lose the file view.

I think the best approach is for the people who like the separate "universal
viewer" idea to try to implement it, regardless of what Nautilus does. If it
works then we can think about using it.
