Building viewers so that they can also operate on some pre-existing
window, instead of just creating their own, is an excellent idea.  I'm
always surprised when otherwise-wonderful viewers, such as Ghostscript
or xv, don't do this  from the start.  Probably just doesn't occur to
their authors.  Also, it seems tricky to do with most (all that I know
of) Xt-based toolkits.
