Why not use the existing emblem system to associate an icon with the
directory? This would require a bit more work in order to allow using
arbitrary images as emblems, and allowing the size and position of the
emblem to change, but it's a lot more generic and better abstracted
Why ".DirThumb"? Is there a relevant standard for this? If there is,
why aren't you using it? If not, I'd prefer to see this standardized
(and with a better naming scheme). This also makes the associated
icon not themable.

Thunar 1.0.1 won't be receiving new features. New development should
happen against git master, which likely has diverged a lot since 1.0.x
due to the new VFS backend.
