This function is part of libkdcraw library that Digikam and KIPI-Plugins use. 
It is very easy to extract the preview image with the library (single API 
call), this is why this method is used by most of KIPI-Plugins (for example, 
all export plugins, like Flickr, Picasa, Facebook, SmugMug... use it).
