"would be nice if" ... on some larger images it's not particularly swift but 
it's certainly acceptable. the thumbnail loading is as fast as i could want, 
it's loading of some large images that i notice a speed difference.

yes, that much is obvious. i don't see the performance of gwenview being a 
blocker, and even less so it's wealth of features. primarily it's the 
usability of the application. even i have a hard time finding my way around 
it and it's the default image viewer on my system =)
