;-) and you are fast at that!!! (faster than I can create new ones it seems;-)

Ad a)

I think that the suggested option would be even more convenient/faster
(but I don't know how difficult it would be to do the coding ...)

Ad b) going through pairs of images:

Not sure, but maybe it can be done quite easily with all what is available now:
- the images are organized in some kind of list in the thumb-bar,
  let's say index_l for the left one and index_r for the right one
- when going right (and index_l+1<number_of_thumbs  and     
  the left panel is replaced by the image corresponding to index_l+1
  and the right one by index_r+1.
  The same for the other direction of going left.

  For changing the images, couldn't one just use the routine
  which is called after drag and drop?
  (Haven't looked at the code yet)
- All this could be activated on some keyboard short-cut
  (maybe CTRL-right CTRL-left?)

Ad d) 
> keyboard navigation in the thumbs-display? 

maybe some Cursor keys to go left/right in the thumbs?
(Mikolaj, what do you think)

Gilles, you are really doing a brilliant job - the light-table
is approaching perfection much faster than I would ever anticipated!

Many thanks,
