yes, a sequence of modal dialogs, unfortunately

understood, but for various reasons i avoided that; what does the 
windows version do if you drop 50 files on it?

anyhow, to handle multiple files better, i've changed the script to 
aggregate and process the output of multiple calls; it is still limited 
by the height of the display (can't quite fit 7 files worth of info on 
my 1152 pixels screen); i'll send the result to you offlist ...

if someone wanted a really integrated Mac GUI tool, i'd suggest building 
this as a Quick Look plugin (not something i can do easily)
