View selected tracks, PDFs in QuickLook windows

This script uses the UNIX qlmanage command to display a Quick Look window of the selected track(s), which can be audio, video, and, perhaps most usefully, PDF, whereby Preview.app is not necessary. Also handy for playing a single track out of playlist context. Need I add that a keyboard shortcut makes this very handy.

Caveats: 1) under Leopard a media file will begin playing immediately, so the script uses a hack to prevent this, 2) under Snow Leopard and better the QL window's title contains "[DEBUG]" which cannot be suppressed, and 3) the QL window can only be dismissed by clicking on its close box.
