Maybe yes, maybe no. One point is that even if we cannot have a
meaningful view of the contents of a file, that file may still play an
important role in the internal structure of the activity and is
interesting to show it. The file tree on the left is not just for
accessing the file contents, but also for displaying to the user the
structure of the bundle.

Sounds good. We could easily display most images, though perhaps we
don't really want to display them but show its "source" in hex.

That's the spirit!
