I'd be very happy to have this script. And a digiKam integration would
be so great.

After all, this would fit my purposes very well. I could give people a
pile of JPEGs and let them know: This is the automatic thing in reduced
resolution, if you want some of those in real good quality, just let me

So why not posting your script here, I don't see any problem with that.

I think this should make it into the extras menu, something like
"Extract JPEG preview from RAW"
