just curious, is kuickshow still being maintained? Additionally it has 
some usability issues, for eg, actions being available only from 
context menu/keyboard-shortcuts and some additional problems like swapping 
out the system at large zooms.

imho, it might be worthwhile to ask the author of one of extragear apps, 
gwenview or showimg, to consider moving into kdegraphics (only relevant if 
kuickshow has no current maintainer).
