i'm searching for a better way to make thumbnails, probably should i ask 
on Inkscape mailing list, because the problem is Inkscape specific?

what i think is needed: if you are familiar with ImageMagik, something 
equivalent with
convert -size 80x80 infile -resize 80x80 outfile

now let me explain: we want images proportionally scaled (up or down) 
and with delimited size (horizontally or vertically)

my script fails in some cases, example for images with height larger 
than width

a possible workaround is to run convert *after* the script, in order to 
obtain the desired height, but why not make all in one single step?
