Inso's QuickView Plus is a Windows-only packaging of its cross-
platform (I think) Outside In technology.  The Outside In stuff can be
licensed by others (it's included in Norton File Manager, Lotus Notes,
and Microsoft Windows Explorer, I think), so someone else could
develop a plugin for other platforms.

If there were demand, they'd probably consider porting QuickView
themselves.  I used to work for Inso, but it was a different division
altogether, so I don't know too much about it.
