imho, speed is indeed one of the two important things that could be improved 
in gwenview. however, i don't think features are a problem =)

the other issue i see is that of better usability. the interface is cluttered 
right now with a ton of toolbar buttons and widgetry. thankfully that's 
probably more easily fixable than starting a new app from scratch. =) my 
question to you, i suppose, is whether or not this is something you're 
interested in working on. e.g.  would working with a usability team member be 
something you'd enjoy doing?

cleaning up the interface, both in terms of visuals and usability, along with 
speed improvements would make this a very attractive project to have in 
kdegraphics to me. this isn't something i'd expect to see happen overnight or 
even necessarily be "completed" in time for the 4.0 release, but i am 
interested in what the development goals are and if they dovetail with kde's 
goals as a desktop suite.

[1] this is an image viewer|browser after all; visuals matter =)
