No, but I read the source.

1. It only works on the player.

2. Why all the seeking to (..., 0, SEEK_CUR) ? Can't you keep track of the
   current seek position with a variable instead?

3. I'd recommend using a bigger buffer for the read, so that the harddrive
   really can spindown properly between the reads.

4. Perhaps most of all, can't this functionality get built-in on the already
   existing text viewer? It seems a bit excessive to feature two different
   text viewers, only using slightly different approaches.

I think it would make more sense to add options/modify the existing one.
