Okay, this is implemented now in the branch "cp+preview".  I merged cp
into it since I needed parts of the cp branch anyway.

Take a look if you wish; it supports ascii previews but with much less
delay (at least for me).

A bunch of cases are *not* handled yet:
1. resizing of ranger, the image is generated only once
2. the columns don't collapse if there is no preview
3. if you stop loading a preview (you can do that by pressing e.g. ^C
or "wdd"), the image is never loaded.
4. I didn't find number 4 yet but it exists

So... gotta work more.
