I generally use a thumbnail program like gthumb or gqview to manage 
images. On the other hand, they are kinda handy when I'm browsing around 
in a directory of mixed files and a few images are also there.

In short, I'd like to be able to toggle thumbs. I'm not sure if the 
default should be toggled on or off -- I'd prefer it off, but I suppose 
most users would like it on.
