Yes I think it's a good idea to load the real image anyway after you go beyond
a certain size. JPEGs are fast to load, and RAWs usually include full size JPG
However I could imagine blowing the thumbnail size up to about 512x512 which
would make the size fourth time bigger. It's quite a big improvement over the
very tiny 256x256 but doesn't sacrifice space too much.

As an example my current collection is 245 GB in total, the thumbnail database
is 1.4 GB. If that is multiplied by four it's roughly 6 GB, which is 2.5% of
the collection's size. In my opinion that's a reasonable space overhead.
