Why not?  If it's the speed of conversion, that could be handled
nicely by a system such as David Kastrup described (which he uses for
his latex rendering package) earlier (and something like that is
really necessary for large directories, regardless of how you display
the thumbnails).

I think both "dired style" and "photo album" style could be useful in
difference circumstances, depending on what I want to do with the
pics:  if I'm re-arranging the files, deleting etc., dired would be
useful; if I just want to look at pictures, a photo-album style layout
[with slightly larger thumbnails] would be useful...

It seems like it should be user-configurable, and configurable
separately for the different cases (you're right the, in the dired
case, they should be a bit smaller).

Does the "standard" allow for saving thumbs with multiple sizes?  Is
the thumb size encoded in the filename somehow?
