If we have the Alt+F1-F6 keybindings, the numbers help correspond the
keybinding to the visual display, perhaps.

I think it's useful if you have a large panel (64 pixel) and we could
figure out how to implement thumbnailing well (i.e. much better than
now). ;-)

Until then I don't think it's that pointful, no. But I think it's a
fairly harmless option some people will like. It should be clear what
the option does, and not too scary if you accidentally turn it on.
