I just took a quick look at it. It looks nice, but I think that the
scrolling needs acceleration. For large image collections it is a bit
difficult to browse using the navigator's bar.

What do you mean with acceleration? Scrolling quicker or scrolling
longer when pressing side buttons? Keyboard accelerators?

Other problem I see with it is that it sucks a lot of CPU on generating
the shadows. I sysprof'd it under big stress and the CPU consumption of
thumbnailing is mostly during the cycles which create the shadows. Don't
know how does nautilus shadows behave with this, but the fact that
nautilus create the shadows only when loading the window and not in a
lazy-loading way like eog, relieves a lot.

Yes, you're right. I'm just trying to find a lighter way to generate
(maybe simpler) shadows. If it continues to suck, we stay with the
good old solid 1px black border. ;-)
