Since January a lot has changed:

1) There is preloading in image preview. If you dont believe, start digikam from a console and watch the output in a directory with raw images ;-)

2) This is obviously what we are dealing with in the immediate future (weeks)

3) The preview is now based on DImg, but internally, loading of embbeded previews in raws and in IPTC and half-size preview of raws is non-interruptable (the latter may change I think, why not use the DImg loader). We have solved this problem by using two loading threads. Then the only problem is the use of resources by the non-interruptable operation, when the prediction of the preloading was not met (i.e., the currently preloaded image is not the needed one)
