Good plan.  I also developed a QImage display widget, which just uses a 
widget-sized pixmap if zoomed.  From my experience, I can confirm that a 
limited pixmap size is absolutely crucial.

Good idea, but...

..one of the most important features of kuickshow is (as the name indicates) 
its' speed.  It would be very sad if that was sacrificed, and one thing I 
don't really like about kwrite is that it takes just a little too long to be 
started without thinking twice.
