I'm not sure about this. Those file info tooltips seve a different purpose 
than regular tooltips. I think you might want them even if you don't want 
regular tooltips, and I guess people could also want it the other way round.
About the previews: We have currently two options for the info tooltips - one 
where you can set the maximum number of text entries shown (people also 
suggested to reduce the default from 6 to 2 or 3 to get it smaller) and a 
checkbox to disabled them completely. I think another checkbox to disable 
just the image previews Would't Hurt (tm).
Btw: On LinuxTag, I heared from some developers that they didn't like those 
huge things at the beginning, but after some time got used to them. Still I 
think it'd be good to be able to disable those image previews because they 
look quite obtrusive. I guess we'd just have to agree on the default setting
