Default Opicon Font Viewer and/or Extensis Suitcase ?

Does anyone know about Opicon and/or Extensis Suitcase ?

While searching my font collections for the elusive Harry Potter Font I realized that I needed a FontViewer that can open fonts outside my Fonts Folder.

I have an uninstalled version of Extensive Suitcase 10... but I haven't used Suitcase since what? Version 3.0?

A detailed description of Opicon can be found here w/ screenshots:

But in short it says:
Opcion Font Viewer is a free font viewer written in Java that allows you to view both installed and uninstalled TrueType fonts on Windows, Linux, Unix or Mac.

The main focus of Opcion is to allow you to view your uninstalled fonts so that you install only the fonts you want and keep your system memory free of fonts you don't want.

As you may have experienced, installing the brand new 1000 fonts font pack you just bought on your Windows, Linux, Unix or Mac computer can lead to slow-downs when starting the computer and when loading other programs.
My info:
PowerMac G3 w/ two 6.0GB harddrives [one mainly my font collections and font creating utilities.] running OS 9.2.2 and Mac OS Runtime For Java [MRJ 2.0]

I also have an HP Pavillion 4553z running Windows98 and a newer version of Java.

So even tho I am actually only interested in viewing uninstalled Mac Fonts at this point in time any information would be greatly appreciated as I work cross platform all the time !!
