Good idea. But make sure to make it configurable.

Guess you're right. I definitely want a view like the current
browser-view as an overview of all my images. However, quick navigation
to a specific image in a range of selected images would be nice.

One thing i'm still missing in KPA is navigation in the image-viewer if
only one image was selected. There were suggestions before, to make the
viewer assume a selection of all images from the current browser-view if
none/only one was atually selected. Unfortunately noone implemented this
till now.
