As for querying the info when starting Gwenview the standalone app from
within Konqueror, it indeed looks like a challenge :-). 

What I would really like to see is Konqueror handling the "previous"
and "next" button itself when switching from a file view to a preview
KPart. This way there is no need to implement this in Gwenview KPart or in
any other preview KPart and the user can easily goes through the files in
the folder.
