This is a spectacularly bad idea, but I guess this is one of those
"avoid weeks of useless argument" situations.

So, fine.

I renamed "tumme" to "thumbnails".  I found "image-dired" unsuitable
because there would be functions called "image-dired-dired-next-line"
and so forth (which can't be renamed "image-dired-next-line" because
there is already such a function).  Also, tumme was not *only* used
with Dired.

[Cue 1000 line essay by Drew Adams about why "thumbnails" is a poor
choice of name.  Whatever, dude.]
