Currently Thunars maximum thumbnail size doesn't allow to be setted any higher
than 128.
This makes it sometimes really hard to guess whats roughly inside the picture
or what this is.
Too a little bigger thumbnails makes browsing a lots easier, especially on
laptop and beamer.
This is not only about preview as in pictures but also goes for e.g. folders.

I installed other filemanagers and looked at what they allow and I found out
* Nautilus is maxed at  ~170px (longest side scaled)
* Dolphin is maxed at  ~250px (shortest side scaled)
Attached descriptive screenshot.

I have to admit 170 is mostly enough to see something, but there may be persons
preferring a little higher.
This is not about default value but more options for users.
I would be very happy if values of e.g. ~170,200,256 are getting added.

Made some searches too and I saw that many people asked in various forums quite
the same question,
why they can't make it any bigger. But nobody seemed to reported it yet.
Too found a two week old forum entry on manjaro forums (which is about hidpi,
but still shows the problem):
It also has a screenshot and quite like what I would prefer Thunar to also
allow in terms of icon size.

As far as I can see this is all about the values in this enum:
Plus additional strings to describe the values.
So this shouldn't be all too hard?

Notice: This all isn't about hidpi or scaling on hidpi screens.
Really only about the icon size values.
Sorry if this is a duplicate, searched but couldn't find something:
