Choose reader application per file - handling of very large epub files

Hi everyone,

is it possible to choose your ebook reader application on a per file basis, instead of deriving it from the overall default settings?

Generally, my preferred application for epub files is fbreader, but I have a few very large files (about 100 MB) that don't open in fbreader. However, they perform very well in pdfreader.

Make a zipped archive of these smaller epubs and change the preferred applications setup. Fbreader is capable of reading zipped files but pdfreader is not, so set the fb2 setting to "Fbreader" and leave the ePub setting at pdfreader.

@clark: you're welcome, not at all.
