 1. nobody wrote a patch, yet
 2. thumbnails are bigger than the 16x16 icons we use at the moment,
    and bigger rows mean less rows are displayed at any given time
 3. one missing bit, the MD5 checksum generation to be precise, needed
    to implement the read part of the thumbnail specification is not
    present in either GLib or GTK+[1][3].

I think this mostly sums it up.



[1] well, there's a bug open[2] with a patch, providing a generic (MD5,
SHA1 and SHA256) checksum API; I'd like a review of it so that it can go
in GLib 2.16, now that Tim branched it.
[3] as it's actually in libegg, inside the pixbufthumbnail sub-module.
