There's one thing that I haven't been able to find out about the
nautilus thumbnailers. I hope it's OK if I take the opportunity to ask
about it here:

Is the thumbnailer supposed to create PNG files that adhere to the
thumbnailing standard? In other words, do the created thumbnail files
have to include the comments that are required by the standard or does
Nautilus add them later?
