Rev just calls the operating system to display its standard file dialog.
If the OS doesn't support previews in that dialog, there isn't much you
can do. That's why it works automatically in Leopard (where this feature
was added) but not in Tiger. It works in Windows if the user sets the
view to "thumbnail", but of course the developer has no control over that.
I suppose one could write an external to do it.
