It brings up the question of Exif thumbnails. I know that in general the
idea of using them has been shot down for one reason or another. But
they might prove useful as an intermediary for large files. For example:

<5M: generate thumbnail
>5M <10M: use exif thumbnail

This is all assuming that as the file size increases, the complexity of
retrieving the exif thumbnail increases as well. If that is not the
case, this proposal makes no sense.
