Nice idea.  I like it.  

Anyhow, I think there should be a RMB menu on the preview widget for disabling 

Activating the preview however is not solved by these.. and I just realized

the itemview, but although (at least in the German translation) the text is 
the same, it is *not* equivalent, but concerned with the preview icons.. ;-}
