I'll go with centering on a square background and I have a feeling that 
the problem may be solved with a very small script invoking imagemagik.

Now we are using the same thumbnails (80x80 px) also for the website, 
what we should do, use the larger thumbnails (128x128px) for website 
(this will result in a need to adjust the layout) or keep two sets of 
thumbnails (heavier maintenance)?
