Nope.  I just use a Shell Extension

and I can preview my PEFs and DNGs in Windows Explorer (with a nice
tooltip-style popup showing most of the useful EXIF information).
In any case, for raw images I shoot DNG+JPG on the K10D, so I've
got a full-size JPG if I want to take a quick look at something.
