Subject: Re: Viewing Files With Plugins UPDATED
From: [IDC]Dragon (idc-dragon_at_gmx.de)

I'm a bit confused about a few things:

When is "first use"? Before displaying a dirctory list for the first time?
We'd need the icon data and the knowledge on what's "supported" by then, or
did I get this wrong?

But they are if "opening" a file which does not match 1. or 2., right?

Is that only for a class 3. plugin, or also for the ones in the config file?

I vote for comma instead of tab, different kind of whitespace gets lost so
easily, but anyway.
