Description:


Notice: this certainly needs a redesign - all those abstract-abstract classes which
define stuff which is only needed in some parts makes this hard to understand.
Especially the fact, that AbstractFileBrowser defines things both as abstract superclass
and as a container is almost incomprehensable...

[class variables:]

    MaxFileSizeShownWithoutAsking ..... for big files, I will ask if only the first part is
                                        to be shown. This number (if non-nil) suppresses this
                                        question for files smaller.
                                        The initial default is 1Mb (1024*1024)
