So far, it feels pretty nice. Haven't looked at the code yet, but for
now assume it's nice and shiny. :)

The new markers are a bit of a step back in my eyes though, as they
don't have a thumbnail and are less precise due to the missing arrow
tail (although that's likely neglible). But I guess that's due to limits
of eog's thumbnailing. We should probably look into ways to improve it
as it has shown these limits in several occasions lately.

As the new functionality is so different (esp. speed-wise) from the
original implementationm, I think having the possibility to switch back
to the old layout through a preferences dialog wouldn't be a nice move
as well (except if it's hard to maintain both paths in the plugin).
